Don't forget to check road conditions before you leave. While you will probably not experience bad weather if you travel during the late spring, summer, and early fall, it is important to check on construction. It is better to know ahead of time rather than to be traveling and get stuck in traffic due to construction. If you're prepared, you can plan an alternative route.
