Am I excited! - Got the ok to go to a conference in Las Vegas & have arranged 5-6 days at the end to experience the awesome sights of the South West USA which seems a world away from New Zealand. Mindful of other postings & not wanting to cram too much in. Perhaps Bryce Canyon via Zion National Park, then to Moab, then via Canyonlands to Meas Verde. Then to Monument Valley and on to the Grand Canyon. Unsure of the options of South Rim vs North Rim vs Grand Canyon West. Could we fit in Lake Powell & Antelope Canyon? At some stage along the way would like to do some rafting if possible (half day only).
Is your standard economy car rental ok or would you advise an upgrade?
On the other hand is it just too late to plan a road trip & we should stick with arranged tours - not usually my scene!
