I've got 2 weeks holiday to take, plenty of air miles, but realistically I can only go away between end of October and November.
I'll be going on my own. Been looking at heading to Denali National Park, however i've been reading that October/November is a pretty crap time to go to Alaska. Ideally I'd like to camp or get a cabin or hostel. The idea of spending time in Denali NP as winter draws in, or sitting in some local bars in quiet season actually appeals though.
Other places i've looked at are Banff/Lake Louise type trips, but again it's shoulder season so not sure what there will be to do other than relax (which isn't necessarily a bad thing!)
I've got close friends in Cayman and San Diego, but no sure I fancy a beach holiday, would prefer mountains.
So would ideally like:
good for lone traveller
not a busy city
snow/trails/interesting stuff to do
doable on the cheap
anyone been anywhere interesting in October/Nov?
