Lightbulb western trip recommendations

Well, there's so many national parks out there I'd look at all of them and rank them by how much you'd want to go there. You could do a southwest trip with places like the Grand Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, etc in AZ and Utah. Enter the southwest Via Albuquerque through I-40--the old route 66 route--take the longest tram in the world on the eastern edge of alb and be 10,000 ft high. After that, drive to the Grand Canyon via Flagstaff and spend some time over there. I'm actually going to be going on that trip myself in a month from now. Going to go see the Canyon, as well as Meteor crater and maybe Sedona--Red Rock country where all the crystal worshippers congregate LOL. If I had more time, I'd then drive up to Monument Valley and go up to Utah and see all the wonderful sights there. After that, I'd drive north up towards Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. After that, drive SE through Wyoming and see Rocky Mountain National Park. Then drive past Denver and go back home. That'll take three weeks I'd imagine.

Another route would be to a west coast trip. Drive on I-10 through El Paso, and see the Saguaro National Park in Tuscon. Wonderful country for sure! Then drive up towards Flagstaff and see the Canyon. After that, drive past Vegas and go through the Central Valley till right before you hit Fresno, and see Sequoia National Park and the largest Trees in the World. The next day you could drive through Fresno and go up towards the bay area and see Yosemite, which many people say is the most beautiful place they've ever seen. Then Keep going north till you hit Mt. Shasta, Crater Lake, Mt. Rainer, the Olympic Penninsula in WA state, then go east to Glacier Nat. Park, and Yellowstone. Definitely would be the trip of a lifetime!

I hope it all works out!
