Looking 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.
