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.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

It sounds like you are planning a great trip around this great country.

When you come to Florida this Spring, be sure to stop and see the beaches in the Panhandle. They are nicer and less crowded than the beaches of the Peninsular.

When you get to the northeast, be sure to see the White Mountains and interior Maine. There is a lot more to Maine than the tourist coast.

When you get out to the Rockies, be sure to see the Bighorn National Forest in north central Wyoming. We go there every year and like it better than Yellowstone.

I think you should take the V-route. Return to Texas after the NE then go up the Rockies.

The you can reserve ALL of next year to do the central US. Drive up the Mississippi to Memphis, then Indianapolis, up through Michigan, cross the Soo and loop through Wisconsin, do the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Then you can meander through Minnesota and continue on through West Dakota, Mt. Rushmore, the Badlands and Black Hills, then Devils Tower. Cap it all with a wander through Wyoming, Big Horn, then head back to base through Colorado.

Sounds like a great roadtrip, but that's a lot of miles. We have been through many of these areas, and any of them would make a great trip by itself.

Wishing you the best on this adventure, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses...
