Here's the plan!

14 days - three states, more than 1,400 miles in a 4x4, visiting a number of national parks, as well as Las Vegas and San Francisco.

We fly into Las Vegas on 13 March and spend two nights - at the Luxor.
We then drive to a ranch west of the Grand Canyon - where we'll be staying in a teepee.
We drive east to the southern rim of the canyon and spend a day marvelling at the place, staying in a local motel.

Next day it's down south to Flagstaff and after some mooching around we head west along Route 66.
We'll break up the journey by staying in Boulder City - probably.
On the 18th we drive up to Death Valley.
Then its around to Lone Pine - don't you love the name! - and then south and round the Sequioia National Forest until we head north to Yosemite.
We spend two days in Yosemite - it's the part of the holiday I'm looking forward to most - and then head west to Big Sur an the west coast.
After two days on the coast we head north to SF - where we stay at out favourite hotel, the Mosser, before flying home three days later.
A lot of driving. But then the US is a lot of country.

I'll try and post a map showing the route later on.

Well I just got back from karate lessons and I am so tired. I am currently doing some research for college and came across your blog. Which makes me laugh really. The internet can certainly bring you in the opposite direction. Even though your blog site is not completely related I think your doing a great job. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very valid points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at discount hotel niagara falls. If you have the energy swing by our site. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job! Sincerely discount hotel niagara falls.
