Hi There

My partner and I are planning a road trip starting in LA on May 26th we have 10 days and would like to cover all of the below without spendings days upon end in the car is this possible??? or should we take some of it as internal flights? would really appreciate any ones help.

Grand Canyon/Yeosimite / Death Valley/Las Vegas

We would only want to spend a night or two in Las Vgas as we are not big into cities but think it woudl be a great experience.

We love the outdoors and would love to include horse ranching for a night? white water rafting mountain biking hiking etc you all get the picture!!!!

Also any tips on where to stay we were looking at some of the ranches round the Canyon but we would also be up for camping if any where provides tents as we will not be travelling with one form the U.K

Help and thanks in advance

Katie :)

Katie,
I would head north to Yosemite NP first. This is where your best rafting options will be. Same for riding horses. I would hit Kings Canyon & Sequoia NP on the way to Death Valley. Into Las Vegas for a few days of 'life in the fast lane'! The Grand Canyon is about a 5 hour drive from Vegas. You should stop at Hoover Dam, it is on route and worth a few hours of your time. Once in Williams, you do have a train option to the GC. On your way back to LA you can drive a section of historic Route 66.

I have plenty of photos of: Hoover Dam, Route 66 and the GC in my gallery. Good luck with your planning and send me PM if you have questions.

If you are thinking Yosemite, you had better book now. Accomodations are filling up quickly for the summer season.
