14日走遍西部美景的计划

My sister recently requested me to layout a plan for her family’s first visit to US next summer, with focus on natural beauty of the country. Here is a 2 week road trip plan for visiting the Western American, including Yellowstone and the so called Grand Circle.

我的姐姐请我给她们一家四口人(以及可能其他三家人,一共十余人)明年暑假来美国度假拟定一个计划。他们大部分都是第一次来美国,除了经典的东岸一串城市,他们还想自驾游美国西部。这里分享一下我制定的一个两星期自驾计划,是从盐湖城开始,先游黄石,再南下看犹他的红石头,再去大峡谷,vegas,zion/Bryce canyon,最后从盐湖城返回。
