Don't want to make my trip/drive longer but would like to be able to stop at few great places to tent overnight.
All suggestions welcome 🙂
Interstates tend to favor low, flat ground as much as possible. There is not as much flat ground along I 40 (Thank heavens for Flagstaff!) but it is still an interstate experience. Along both I 10 and I 40, there is lots of interesting country - - the Chiricahua Mountains in SE Arizona especially come to mind, as well as the Really Fine Canyon north of Flagstaff, but you must leave the interstate to experience them.
@Slyfoxxx I'm not sure if you've heard of https://freecampsites.net/ , but they're a website that has a decent record of different campsites (most are free) and they just added this nifty new feature that shows you all the campsites it knows of when you type in a starting and destination point. I'm using it from my trip from Florida to Maine this summer!
