Re: Getting ready for my first solo adventure - input welcom

From Spokane you could easily head to Winthrop and head west through the north cascades hwy and North Cascades NP. That's a spectacular drive. Once you connect back up with I5, you could make your way over to Port Angeles and drive 101 south through Olympic NP.

Re: Getting ready for my first solo adventure - input welcom

OK, decision made - I know it's touristy, but I love Yellowstone and the Tetons, so that's where I'm going.

It will still be more of a drive-through than sit-and-stay, but I'm not passing up the chance to be in those mountains again. Last time I was there was 2011, when we packed three humans and all of our camping gear into my little Prius for a three week trip. No rooftop carrier, either.

Re: Getting ready for my first solo adventure - input welcom

You might check this thread if you haven't already... there was a bunch of discussion of places to go and MKRyan and I threw in a little caution and advice about camping in and around the Tetons and Yellowstone:

Re: Getting ready for my first solo adventure - input welcom


North of Las Vegas and south of St. George on I-15 is a very nice campground within sight of the freeway called the Virgin River Canyon Campground. It is in the tiny corner that I-15 crosses through Arizona. We have stayed there twice coming and going on I-15 toward other adventures.


I-15 North (AZ), Virgin River Gorge, Mile 9 To Mile 27

Re: Getting ready for my first solo adventure - input welcom

The Virgin River Gorge is one of my favorite places. Work takes me to St. George a couple of times a year, so I've driven through a lot, but never stayed.

Re: Getting ready for my first solo adventure - input welcom

My best advice would be to not overplan the trip. The best parts of our trips have always been things we happened across, not things we planned to see. And if we wind up spending the whole week in one place it just meant we had to come back to see the other sites.
