Hi! My husband, 15 year old son, myself + maybe son's friend have the current idea but are OPEN to help!
We waited too long to find a spot during probably the busiest week of travel.
We are going week before 4th of July. We lucked out and did get 2 nights at north rim- but now our itinerary has to be based around that..
we really need to try to do it in 7nights
this is our current thought
day 1 -drive from ATX to Albuquerque by car, sleep
day 2-get rv drive to Petrified Forest- hoping place to stay with RV near by?
day 3-drive to north rim- this is a way longer drive than I would prefer- but hopefully longest of trip?
arrive at North rim
day 4 North rim
day 5 wake up north rim drive to Bryce (is this worth it as it seems alot of time out and back with the route we probably need)
sleep somewhere near there with rv?
day 6 drive to MESA VERDE? --this may be too far??and sleep with rv
day 7 drive to Albuquerque turn in rv- sleep in hotel
wake up drive to ATX
We are open to ANY ideas or edits...but cannot change the North Rim part at this point
We love to hike, I absolutely love water and water falls and would really like to do a day rafting somewhere in there
was trying to figure out how to see Havasu Falls- but hard to research
Husband really wants to see Mesa Verde
prefer to walk/bike or take SHORT shuttles to places- don't want to ride a train in from Williams
We could even leave Texas a different route, pick up RV somewhere else or earlier
p.s. should we bring our dogs? (7 pound and 25 pounder)
