From the 4th of August to the 28th of September, I will come for the first time in North America: first the Western US then Northern Mexico. The trip will start and end in Los Angeles (plane tickets already bought). I'm more interested in the national parks and monuments, wilderness, forests etc. than in the cities. I plan to camp most of the time, take advantage of the Camp Space thread from times to times, and go to an hotel when neither is possible. The bike is a DRZ400-S. Could you have a look at my planned route below and give me your opinion: Am I missing something nice, is one of these places overrated or best to avoid at this time of the year (because of the heat or the herds of tourists)? For instance, is the Route 50 and Bonneville salt flats worth missing the coast of North California and Oregon? Should I leave Mexico for another trip and instead ride North to Canada. The map is only here to give an overview of the route. I didn't chose those specific roads, I just entered the places I want to see and ticked "avoid highways" in the options of the route generator. Start in Los Angeles Sequoia N.P. Yosemite N.P. Colfax, CA Lake Tahoe Route 50 (Loneliest Highway), NV Bonneville Salt Flats Craters of the Moon N.M. Grand Teton N.P. Yellowstone N.P. Devils Tower Badlands N.P. (Maybe Wind Cave) Chimney Rock Arches N.P. Canyonlands N.P. Mesa Verde Monument Valley and Valley of the Gods Bryce canyon Zion N.P. Grand Canyon north rim Meteor crater Petrified forest White Sands Chiricahua N.P. Tombstone Crossing into Mexico at Agua Prieta or Nogales That's around 10 000 km or 6 000 miles, 30 to 40 days. That leaves from 15 to 25 days for Mexico and back to L.A. If I have enough time, I'd like to go South to visit Teotihuacan before going back North to take the ferry to Baja. If I don't, I will simply go to Chihuahua, Copper Canyon, take the ferry at Los Mochis then Baja. Thank you.
