I'll be driving from Easton, PA to Sacramento in late October and would appreciate some recommendations on an easy driving route (ie less traffic) and some scenic stops. I'm not much interested in big cities; I prefer the great outdoors. Plan A is the shortest: basically Rt. 80 all the way. I plan to drive about 500 mi a day till I get to the Rockies and stay at cheapo motels and hostels. Once I get "out west" I plan to spend a day or two when I see some real nice attractions in Wyoming, Utah and Nevada.

If it looks like an early winter I'll have to resort to Plan B: the southerly route. Basically Rt. 40 thru Oklahoma, Amarillo, Albuquerque, Flagstaff then up Rt 99 or Rt. 5. The more I think about it the more I like this route. I did it years ago and really enjoyed it, esp. the stay in Sedona, AZ. Suggestions on stop overs and short scenic side trips appreciated. Thanks.

If you could do Bryce Canyon and Zion National park you'd definitely be getting some scenic photos and some great hiking..
