I am in Los Angeles and planning to go out for 12 days on Year end holiday. I have already visited Grand Canyon, Page, Arches, Bryce, LV, Zion, Death Valley, Yosemite, PCH, Banff, Jasper, Yellowstone, Monument Valley, Sedona. Initially I was planning to visit Arizona and NM part (Tucson, White Sands, Santa Fe, Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon) in my car. But I was realizing that I will not gain much from beauty and scenic point of view. There will be less number of beautiful places and large flat distances in between. Am I understanding it correct or missing something ?
This will be my one time longest time in a year, where I can see places. I am not much into skiing, beaches and cities. Though beautiful, decoratives cities are ok and nice beaches are ok to drive through. Should I think of other places in US ? Any recommendations ?
If some other place is too far to drive, one option for me to fly to some place and then pick rental car from there, roam around and return on last day and fly back to home.
I do not have problem in driving in snow, just it should not be slippery.
Thanks in advance
