I can leave the 14th, but have to be back in time for Christmas. I have never been out west, and this might be my last opportunity to do so because I will be graduating college on the 11th. I will be by myself, but I deliver pizzas as a part time job, so I am accustomed to being in a car all day. I want to be able to see the scenic stuff and want to know where i could lodge. It's more of a scenic vacation and I also would like to know some good nature things I can see like the grand canyon.
