Road Trip Out West from PA

Jump to last reply

I am not looking to spend a great deal of time in any of these places. My goal is to enjoy the drive and the scenery without hiking and camping or anything like that. Here is my proposed itinerary with a extra day or two for a leeway depending on how interested I am in certain sites. Looking for constructive criticism and why this wouldn't be plausible. What could be cut out to make it a better trip? Thank you.
