More cross country route advice neeeded
Okay, here is another I need help planning my route thread!!!
Mainly concerning : Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana Idaho.
I am planning a trip from Sept 10 to Oct 2.
I am heading out west again but to the more northern part of the Rockies this time.
Due to an injury my wife has had to use some of her time off so she will not be accompanying me on the 1st half of the trip. So I am going to take 2 extra days off and give myself a week to get to my 1st destination which is Bear Lake UT from Spanish Fort AL.
I will have Sept 17th - 20th at Bear Lake UT to explore...then leave on the 21st to go to Steamboat Springs CO. for a week with the wife. Then 4 days to make it back home. (3 and a cushion/recoup day before back to work)
I plan on camping most nights, just me a tent and sleeping bag, some beanie weanie's and of coarse my" little friend."
I have been from my home on the Gulf of Mexico in Alabama to San Antonio Texas (I-10). Also took a week in Pagosa Springs Co. and a week in Sedona AZ. via Dallas, Amarillo, I-40.
So I've seen the sites in those areas. Painted Desert, Grand Canyon, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Red Rock, Oray, the Silver Thread and part of the Mililon dollar highway.
My question is what route to take to Bear Lake.
Do I want to go a northern route or do I want to go to Canyon Land 1st or spend all my time at the Grand Tetons or Yellowstone. I like the twisties but am an avid photographer so scenery is as important as the ride.
I would like to do the Grand Loop I think, also thinking about Mt Rushmore South Dakota, and the Devils Towers WY.
I want to add as many states to my travel map as possible and don't want to miss the good stuff.
The drive from Dallas to Amarillo then I-40 heading west in July. It was interesting but would be brutal on a bike so I don't want to do that.
Lord Help me to be the Man my Dog thinks I am!
