We are thinking of a road trip from Austin, TX to the Grand Canyon during our kid's winter break. So would be week before or after Christmas. My concern is the road conditions. We've lived in Austin for 20+ years so not used to driving on snow or ice. Anyone know what the weather is typically like in the Albuquerque to Grand Canyon area in December? I realize there's no way to know with certainty. Also, any idea about cell phone service in the remote areas of TX, NM & AZ?
Thanks for any advice!
