So I've always been toying with the idea of road tripping out that way.
The footage on TV and the web have always intrigued me and I'd like to get up there next winter.

I believe the heat is bearable then and hiking-activities for me anyway are best suited in cooler weather.

So I have been googling and came across the following.

I'm toying with the idea of spending 6-7 nights in the area, with alternating a hike day and a rest day between each hike.

So I'm looking at 3 hikes, on average about 5-6 hours long, with the hope of being able to chill the afternoon, check out the next morning on a rest day with a drive to the next place.

So I don't know the area at all.
I know I want to see as much green and cool things as possible, game too.

Anyway, what are your recommendations for do's, don'ts and don't miss out opportunities please?

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
The venues listed for accommodation seem cool, but if you know of any other cool places, please share.
Self catering is the way I normally roll, but it would be nice for the Mrs and I on occasion to take a break from cooking as well.

TIA
