Grand Canyon NP would be perfect in October.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

We've discussed it and it looks like we're going to somewhere in Big Sur! I guess I'll see you guys when I try a better time at the Sierra's, probably next summer. Thank you guys a TON for your help. Without you we probably would've gone and frozen to death on a random mountain peak in october!
