How far south will i have to go to escape the snow and cold.
The plan now is to pick a few nice days in March and drive south from Edmonton to Southern Nevada and then head to the coast and work our way north back to Canada as spring arrives
Any suggestions? Is Nevada far enough south??
Southern Nevada would be fine that time of year - especially compared to Alberta. I would suggest that you don't miss southern Utah since it's relatively close to there. Southern Nevada, Valley of Fire, etc are also nice, but imho their scenery just doesn't compare to the Utah Canyonlands, Arches, Bryce, or Zion.
We're taking delivery of our Escape on March 20th, then heading in that general direction. 5 weeks off! Can't wait.
