Hi again, after all your help in planning my last two trips i'm looking to start planning again. This time i'm asking before booking anything as you set me straight on a few things last time! The trip would be in a rental car with overnight Hotel/Motel stops.
I have always had a thing about the old west and the lanscapes and scenery that goes hand in hand. Having visited the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Tombstone, Yosemite and some ghost towns on previous trips i want more of the same. The thing is i must come in late October, early November and am limited to two weeks. I want to spend 5 - 6 nights in Vegas so that leaves me 10 -12 nights to plan.
My prefered choice is Denver as a start point but i'm concened about the weather. If i could start there, maybe just maybe i could go up into Dakota and see the Little Big Horn Site, Sioux City and then across and come back down through Salt Lake City. But then i'm very close to Yellowstone and even from the documentaries on TV here it looks a bit of a no go zone in November.
The second choice is Dallas, maybe south to the Alomo, Santa Fe and then across or North to Dodge City and then across and up to Utah to Glen Canyon, Bryce, Zion and Rainbow Bridge.
The starting points are based on where i can get direct UK to US flights to by the way.
Hopefully you get the idea or is there an alternative that any one can suggest, i would love some ideas.
Apologies if this has been asked before and for such a long post, thanks in anticipation.
All the best
