We’re getting closer to our trip into the States now and, thanks to some of the info I’ve found on here, we’re putting the main road trip part of it - in Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas etc - together. I would appreciate it if anyone could take a quick look at our proposed itinerary and let me know what you think.
We’ve done a fair bit of research on things to see, places to go etc already and I won’t mention them here as there’s so many of them – but if there are any places to see, things to do or different routes to take that you recommend it would be great to hear them.
Day 1 – Moab to Torrey
Day 2 – Torrey to Cedar City via HW 12
Day 3 – Cedar City to Springdale
Day 4 – Springdale to Las Vegas
Day 5 and 6 in Vegas
Day 7 – Las Vegas to Flagstaff
Day 8 in Flagstaff and surrounding area
Day 9 – Flagstaff to Tuscon
Day 10 in Tucson and surrounding area
Day 11 – Tucson to Bisbee
Day 12 – Bisbee to El Paso
Day 13 in El Paso and surrounding area
Day 14 – El Paso to Terlingua
Day 15 – Terlingua to Odessa
Day 16 – Odessa to Lubbock
Day 17 – Lubbock to Lincoln
Day 18 – Lincoln to Santa Fe
Day 19 – Santa Fe to Denver area
Day 20 – Denver area to somewhere en-route to the Black Hills, SD
Day 21 – to Rapid City
Day 22 in Rapid City (for Deadwood, Mount Rushmore etc)
Day 23, 24, 25 etc en-route to our flight home from Calgary, AB.
I’ve researched driving distances and the last week or so is a lot of driving every day, so I’m thinking of getting to El Paso and forgetting about heading into West Texas and just working our way up north to Albuquerque, Santa Fe etc.
Any advice much appreciated
