buttrapinpirateLooking for some advice from anyone who's been through that area, my friend and I are gonna spend like four days going from San Diego to Red Rocks in Colorado to see Odesza late may. We wanna car camp the whole way and do some cool hikes. Zion National Park, San Isabel and Pike are piquing our interest. Any cool hikes or cliff jumping/ swimming in that area would be a major bonus. I really don't care about the extra mileage if I have to take some random highway instead of a straight path there. Pretty open at this point, with the exception that I can't do any gnarly off roading in my A4.
Spark notes; wanna car camp through some national parks in the southwest region, cliff jumping would be neato.
appacheck out goblin valley in utah. it's a state park, but if you keep heading down the road instead of turning left onto the state park land you can drive up on a dirt road and camp in this fuckin tight, colorful, desert swell. also great sand dunes in southern colorado if your route takes you that way. i saw odesza in boulder a month ago or so and it was fuckin tight and red rocks is spectacular, have a blast.
buttrapinpirateCool thanks for the advice on the spot there. Is the camping spot hard to find or anything?
Also does anyone know of just some cool creeks or rivers along the way with any interesting pools etc? Kind of a sucker for water photography too
s_a_mDon't hesitate to ditch your national park things for dope shit you drive by along the way. You're going to go by so much rad BLM and national forest land along the way. They're always empty crowd wise compared to national parks, there are hardly any rules so you can do whatever the fuck you want, and if you look in the right spots they're just as beautiful.
theabortionatorThat's quite a drive for a pair of djs but whatever. Lot's of good stuff mentioned. Honestly was just curious who you were seeing at RR. Was guessing pretty lights but close enough.
