Hi Roadtrip America!
I would really appreciate your help. I am coming to Las Vegas for work in July and would like to use this as a starting point for a 7-10 day round trip into Arizona and Utah. There are a number of key places I want to visit:
- Arches NP
- Monument Valley
- Lake Powell
- Slot Canyons
I have visited Grand Canyon in the past, so I really want to spend time in new places.
My main question to you, the Forum, is which direction to travel! Do I go North from Vegas, and then East over to Arches NP? If so where else could I visit en route? Should I go to Zion? Where else could I stop between Zion and Arches?
Also, how long do you think I should spend in each place? I am very flexible on timing at the moment as I haven't booked my flights.
Finally, I am on a budget, so need some reasonable priced accommodation - this seems quite challenging in July! Can anyone recommend good places to stay near Arches and then Monument Valley? For Lake Powell/Slot Canyons, I think it will need to be Page... do you agree?
Sorry - hit the wrong button, hadn't quite finished!
All suggestions would be very, very gratefully received! I will be travelling on my own and I'm a keen photographer... just in case that influences any replies. I look forward to hearing from you all.
thank you very much!!
