This is such a great forum - everyone is so helpful!
I am from New Zealand but have lived in New York for the last 4 years.
My boyfriend and I are planning to take a roadtrip sometime next year - we were thinking either June or September (outside of the school vacations).
We are taking a week off work so have roughly 8-9 days.
I was thinking of starting in New Mexico, driving up through the Southwest corner of Colorado (seeing Mesa Verde), across to Utah to one of the parks then down to the Grand Canyon.
Any comments or suggestions on this rough itinerary, places to see/stay would be greatly appreciated.
Also, we would be flying into one city, renting a car and then flying out of our destination city. Any comments on this plan (including suggested start/finish cities) would be appreciated as well.
Many thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
