We are planning a road trip from Las Vegas to Santa Fe in mid November.
We only have around 7 days. I am not familiar with that part of the US and am slightly concerned about driving times (we'll have our 4 year old daughter with us, so don't want to spend too much of the week in the car) and driving conditions - principally snow (we are from Australia, so have zero experience driving in those conditions!).
At this stage, our itinerary is:
Day 1 Las Vegas - Williams
Day 2 Williams - Monument Valley via Grand Canyon
Day 3 Monument Valley to Durango
Day 4 Durango to Taos
Day 5 Taos to Santa Fe
Day 6 Santa Fe to Albuquerque (for a flight)
I would be really grateful for any insight you can provide on that route, and whether you think it might be a bit ambitious in the time allowed, or if you think there is a chance of difficult driving conditions. If so, it would be great if you think there are any alternative routes from Monument Valley to Santa Fe.
Thanks so much for your help!
