My sister was recently looking for information on traveling the US and ran across this really cool site that helped her out, http://www.takingatrip.com See if that can help you out.

A few places I would strongly suggest you check out are Arches National Park near Moab (eastern middle of Utah), Lake Powell--particularly from the southernmost point of it (on the Utah--Arizona border)--(you might want to take the boat ride to Rainbow Bridge--a natural arch formation up the lake a ways), Monument Valley--not a national park (only because it is on Indian land), but just as scenic--also right on the Utah-Arizona border, and Bryce Canyon National Park (also in Utah).

I'm not from Utah--I'm a Californian--but I have to believe that Utah, Alaska, and California probably have the most scenic natural views in the whole country, with Utah probably ranking #1 state-wise. (Although the Grand Canyon in Arizona is probably #1 overall for a single view).

You know if you watched the beginning of the movie, Mission Impossible #2, starring Tom Cruise you can see some of this stuff. It starts with him climbing a bluff in Monument Valley, then getting to the top of it and ending up at Dead Horse Point (near Moab) which in reality is about 100 miles away. Ah, the magic of the silver screen.

Enjoy

I would definitely recommend hiking in the Rockies, about 1.5 hours from Denver, then San Diego, it's beautiful and has great beaches. Third, when driving LA to San Francisco make sure to take highway 1 up the coast. It's amazing! Best of Luck!
