Re: Route Ideas L.A. to Yellowstone
It looks like you don't have a lot of time and the weather is getting hot in the desert. I'm going from memory but I would head east from LA and pick up US 395 North to Susanville, CA. From there I would take 97 North to Bend, OR. If you have enough time - the Cascade Highway Loop off 97 is worth it. .From Bend pick up US 20E to Yellowstone. You will actually have a short ride on I-84 around Boise, ID. Time and weather will be your concerns. Both the high & low deserts will be hot. An extra day will give you a lot of enjoyable riding. 395 from Bishop CA to Reno is enjoyable and most 97 will offer some great scenery. Maybe some others more familiar with the area can give you better input. Enjoy the the ride and stay safe.
