Long road trip from NC out West and back

Post by davehurd »

We would like to plan a trip from North Carolina heading north up through Michigan, the Upper Peninsula and heading out west to see the giant redwoods and then working our way south and back to North Carolina again. Does anyone have any suggestions on sites that we should take in during that trip? We're planning on at least a month for this trip.

We did something similar on our way to Yellowstone a few years ago. We rode from Raleigh to Michigan across the UP then in to WI, MN, SD then WY to MT and finally back to WY. We did it just after Labor Day. It was one of our best trips on a motorcycle. We took the scenic route whenever possible and took time to visit some interesting places. If your interested in some routes and places to see let me know and I'll work something up for you.
