My partner and I want to get out of town Feb 28-March 5, leaving from Berkeley, CA. We're not really sure where to visit other than the Hoover Dam. We'd like to visit other places, but aren't really sure of wear to go. Souther Utah? Northern Arizona? To New Mexico? Back into California?
We'd like to do some hiking/exploring. Ghost towns, roadside oddities, and other regional attractions are appreciated.
Right now we're sort of worried about weather. Will it be an issue? I'm thinking about keeping our options open and playing by ear, but we're not sure what those are yet. I've read previous questions about roadtrips in this area, but it seems like most people roadtrip in the Summer and don't address any seasonal issues.
Other data points: No Vegas. We're vegans so any special veg recommendations are appreciated. Any tips about local coffee roasters or record stores are also appreciated. (Man, that sounds cliched.)
