Seasons and Routes
As winter comes to an end, my mind is on the road map and climate map of North America. We are very exited about Spring, Summer and Fall, as we will be full time traveling.
But what parts of the country should we see when?
We are very active people and enjoy fly fishing, hiking, and being outdoors (and a good evening in the AS relaxing). We love mountains and beaches.
Our route starts in Texas at the end of April and here's what I'm thinking:
Spring-Florida and the Appalachians to upstate New York
Summer-either shoot west by way of the Great Lakes into Montana and Glacier National Park, then North into Canada to see Banff, whistler, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Oregon Coast, into the Redwoods, Yosemite, San Francisco, SoCal, now we are getting into
Fall-Zion N.P., Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, Arches into Colorado for Fall colors and cool weather.
But is it too cool?
Another plan is to come back to Texas (base) after the spring run up to the NE, then drive up through the rockies through the summer from south to north, then back down the west coast in the fall.
It seems strange to say, but 3 seasons isn't enough time to see this great land.
Thanks for your thoughts, ideas and experiences.
