Any idea's on interesting places to go on a road trip through the West Coast?

I'm going on a road trip in a few weeks, to my grandfather's house. He lives in Denver, Colorado, and we are leaving from Los Angeles, California. The suggestions can be a little out of the way. I want to see Roswell, NM; and the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona. I'm just looking for some interesting places to go in Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. I know I'm not going to be able to go to all of them, but it's great to have options!

Update:

Thanks for the suggestions but I forgot to mention, In previous years, I have visited The Grand Canyon, The Four Corners monument (which was a total let down btw), Las Vegas (but who couldn't go to Vegas again, right?) and the giant Meteor Crator in Arizona. Anything new and interesting would defenately be appreciated!

    You can visit the Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon! Plus, you should check out Las Vegas at night. Beautiful. Not to mention, from the pictures I've seen, Interstate 15 is scenic between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City.

    If you find yourself near the town of Leggett, CA (WAY up north of San Francisco on 101), you can see giant redwood trees so large, people cut tunnels through the trunks.

    And if you do wind up in Montana, there's a place of of I-90 called the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historical Site. It's the remnants of a ranch which once covered parts of five states and two Canadian provinces.

    Or, you could go down to the Four Corners Monument (UT/CO/NM/AZ).

    why no longer pass to Calgary? Or Vulcan, AB? that's a city in case you like star Trek. Edmonton is astounding too. pass to Niagara Falls. it is totally astounding. you could take a boat experience ideal as much as the falls.
