I have a two week window in January and am thinking of possible tours in California. I have toured in a variety of countries but no experience with this area, this time of year. Would appreciate any advice!
Have thought of the following:
1) Start in San Jose, down the coast to San Diego. I know this is the rainy season, but I understand that this is a La Nina year. Does that mean the chances of significant rain are small enough to make this attractive? Or is this still too unsettled a time of year for this ride?
2) Start in San Diego, take the the Southern Tier route to Phoenix.
3) From San Diego or LA, to Joshua Tree, explore other scenic areas, return LA/SD.
Am coming from NY, would start not in great shape but mainly concerned about the weather conditions
Thanks for any advice or thoughts!
