I know you didn't ask...  To increase your count in a short period of time, you can almost double what you have by doing LA to Seattle or vice versa.
That's the plan, along with Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico.

From April 3rd to October 3rd 2022, Arches National Park will be implementing a timed entry system to help manage traffic and improve visitor experiences. Visitors will need three things for their visit: ⁣

1️) A timed entry ticket⁣
2️) A photo ID⁣
3️) A park entrance fee OR valid park pass⁣
For those without early reservations, a limited number of additional reservations will be available for purchase at 6 p.m. MDT the day before entry through Recreation.gov. In addition, no reservations are required to enter the park after 5 p.m.
Timed entry tickets are available now and being released on a first-come, first-served basis. If you're planning on visiting Arches this year, claim your tickets here.
More information about how to access Arches National Park during the pilot timed entry period is available at http://go.nps.gov/ArchesTicket

Has anyone ever gone to cherry springs state park in western pa? I’m interested  in heading over there for the stargazing that’s a pretty good spot to go on this side of the country
Anything else to do around there? I see lodges around-any reviews on them?
