My dear friend has convinced me that we both need to see the desert southwest. Every time I hear about New Mexico I get this image of fresh, dry air, adobes, art and spicy cuisine. So I said YES!
I'd like to see the Grand Canyon and Sedona. She has a vision of a turquois necklace. :)
She wants to drive all the way out there and all the way back. This might take a lot of time and despite my Prius, be rather expensive.
I'm a fan of open-jaw trips; in this case we'd take a flight to Vegas, rent a car to Santa Fe or Albuquerque, and take the next flight back.
I know which one would be faster. Which one's more fun? Cheaper?
