That photo of Alabama hills is awesome @trayscool , I'm going to try and plan out a route that allows me to see as much of the suggestions as possible. I went to Mammoth cave in Kentucky this morning and had an incredible time. Will post some pictures of my trip so far.

Grand Canyon, Horseshoe bend, antelope canyon. If time permits (def worth it) hike to Havasu falls and spend one night.

Utah - Zion (go rappelling, angels landing, and narrows).
Moab (do a bit of offroading)

CA - (other than mentioned) Drive route 1 from San Diego - San Francisco. Camp at Big Sur. Check out Sierras (Go to Monache Meadows). Drive North, check out Shasta. Then go to WA. Mt. Rainier is awesome...

Lots of great ideas so far. This late in the year youíll need to check out the weather if planning on seeing Yosemite NP. The beautiful route from east to west from Mono Lake through Tuolumne Meadows on Rt 120 (Tioga Road) is normally closed in October after the first snowfall. It is open now. Check the park website as you get closer. Current Conditions - Yosemite National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

If youíre traveling through southern Utah (Page - Kanab) I suggest hitting House Rock Valley Road off Rt 89. Camping at Stateline Campground. Thereís a short hike through Wire Pass Slot Canyon to Buckskin Gulch.

Another idea is to hit Bruce Canyon. And Death Valley.

Have a great time!

Def want to check beforehand if you go to Glacier. Lots of snow and road closures in some parts.

A little late but Redfish Lake Lodge and Stanley, Idaho. Sawtooth Range is awesome, it's the less crowded and better Grand Tetons.

From Idaho Falls go to Arco, ID up to Chilly, ID, then highway 208 to Sun Valley, and then up to Stanley with a stop at Redfish Lake just before Stanley. Amazing place.

Got Beer?

Geez, after all that driving and touring the country’s finest scenery you’ll need some refreshment. If you’re traveling north from San Francisco toward Oregon on route 101 you NEED to stop in Petaluma at the Lagunitas Brewing Company. Arrange for a Brewery Tasting/Walking tour. It’s a blast. Great beer, food, and schwag. You can reserve a spot on their website calendar:
Petaluma - Lagunitas

I thought the Havasu falls required reservations, which are nearly unobtainable? I tried a few years ago, kept calling to a busy line and then when I got through all the passes for the year were taken. Has this changed?

I really must thank you all for the awesome suggestions. I haven't had time to really stop and plan things out because I feel like I'm trying to get to the north before the snow scares me away. I know the 4runner can probably handle most obstacles but having virtually no experience driving in snow or snowy conditions makes me a bit apprehensive.

I've finally figured out how to lower the filesize of my photos so I can attach them. These are some photos from Mammoth Cave, in Kentucky. The world's longest cave system with 412 miles explored so far.

I've been there twice (for a single overnight). Once 14 years ago and once 3 years ago. Both times around summer. I walked down there and paid a fee (first time was like $5, last time was about 50ish). First time no one asked for a permit (there was an employee in the parking lot... he didn't say anything and so didn't I). Second time I started around noon in summer... no employee was in parking lot.

Not sure if they got stricter now?
