I am in the DC area.
I had a 15 day forced vacation in December of 2006. So I flew into phoenix, AZ and then drove up to Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon and Zion (in a rental car). It was an absolute pleasure to drive to all those places. I really enjoyed my first true road trip (for pleasure). Now, I do have a lot of vacation days left this year. So I can possibly get around 2 weeks over the christmas/new year time. But, I don't like flying and love my little car. Is it feasible for me to drive to NM in my car and then do a road trip? My concern is that I will end up spending 3 days each just going back and forth!
what do you guys think?
