Cool 3 states, 3 weeks and 2000 miles in a Jeep - Itinerary

This trip was planned as a 5th wedding anniversary trip with DH aka Nathan. As we loved SF so much in our visit 3 years ago that was a good place to start and as we were planning a skiing trip in the next few years Lake Tahoe seemed a good place to check out. I had been out west twice in the 90's so wanted to go back to Yosemite, GC and LV so a route was then planned. As for a car due to driving through the mountains and desert then a Jeep was the best way to go.

June 16th Friday - Fly to SF after starting in Clubhouse Lounge at LHR a treat as it's our 5th wedding anniversary today - Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf (Weather)

June 17th Saturday - Wander around Fisherman's Wharf then drive to Alamo Sq and Golden Gate Park finish at Palace of Fine Arts

June 18th Sunday - Off to Union Sq for some shopping Golden Gate Park, Alamo Sq, Nob Hill and the Fairmont Hotel

June 19th Monday - Drive across Golden Gate Bridge, then to Sausalito and into the Sonoma and Napa Valleys

June 20th Tuesday - Have a last look at SF

June 21st Wednesday - Head off to Lake Tahoe - Station House Inn (Weather)

June 22nd Thursday - Explore Lake Tahoe ie drive around it

June 23rd Friday - Up the Gondola to Heavenly

June 24th Saturday - Off to Yosemite - Yosemite View Lodge (Weather)

June 25th Sunday - Explore Yosemite, Half Dome and the Falls

June 26th Monday - Off to Glacier Point

June 27th Tuesday - Drive to Barstow - Holiday Inn (Weather)

June 28th Wednesday - Calico Ghost town and Walmart

June 29th Thursday - Shopping and relaxing

June 30th Friday - Drive to the Grand Canyon - El Tovar (Weather)

July 1st Saturday - GC soaking up the scenery on the shuttle along the Rim

July 2nd Sunday - Helicopter over the Canyon

July 3rd Monday - Off to Las Vegas via the Hoover Dam - Bellagio (Weather)

July 4th Tuesday - Have a look at the Strip and do some shopping

July 5th Wednesday - Wander up and down the strip and see 'Mamma Mia!'

July 6th Thursday - More shopping in the outlets then PotC 2

July 7th Friday - Packing and time for home

So there you are our plans for 3 weeks which show what we actually did each day and where we stayed.
