In September 1999 we made a trip across the west of the USA. We drove around with a car (finally 3000 miles / 4800 km) and visited the big cities and the national parks. So we bought at Sequoia the Golden Eagle Pass which is the cheapest and easiest way to enter the parks.
I invite you to take a look at the pictures grouped in the following sections:
Our trip: San Francisco - Highway #1 - Visalia - Sequoia NP - Lone Pine - Death Valley NP - Las Vegas - Springdale - Zion NP - Bryce Canyon NP - Page / Lake Powell - Grand Canyon NP / South Rim - Flagstaff - Phoenix / Scottsdale - Palm Springs - Joshua Tree NP - Los Angeles
If you are looking for information about USA West, you can mail me, I'll try to give you good advice.
