So I've got a few weeks of vacation I've yet to use and I'm thinking of taking one of those weeks to go on a road trip somewhere. I live in southern Alberta and have two possible ideas, but am up for suggestions. I will be doing this trip solo and will probably stretch it to 9-10 days. I have no particular goals other than to see cool stuff.
The first is to make my way to Seattle by heading south and taking the Going to the Sun Road through Montana and then through Washington, maybe heading along the coast toward Vancouver before wandering back through the mountains toward Alberta. Roughly 1300km each way (800 miles) Main draw of this idea:
The second idea is to drive further, but straight south and eventually end up in either Grand Staircase NP/Lake Powell or Moab/Canyonlands NP, going through Yellowstone NP, Grand Teton NP, Jackson, etc on the way. Roughly 1800 km (1100 miles) each way. Main draw is:
Any other suggestions or ideas? Nothing is set in stone and nothing will be set in stone during the trip as it will be just myself. I can do pretty much whatever.
Anyone else been on epic road trips just for the sake of seeing stuff? Feel free to share thoughts, ideas, tips, etc.
