First off, theres 4 of us going and we got money so where staying hotels and eating good and looking to do whatever. I want suggestions and ideas from everyone because im planning all of it for the group.
Day 1 is a 16 hour drive from IL to glenwood springs colorado, we plan on leaving the night before (8pm) and getting to GS about 2pm and relaxing the rest of the day.
Day 2 will be 3 hours to moab utah where we are hitting arches and canyonlands national parks, no other plans
Day 3,4 we going to vegas and staying at the luxor
Day 5 is 6 hours to the sequoia national park to see the giant trees (were hippies lol)
Day 6 I believe will be a 3 hour drive to L.A none of us has seen the pacific ocean and im currently trying to figure out the best viewing area near L.A because also we are checking out hollywood for a few hours.
Day 7 is going to be about 7-8 hours from L.A to the grand canyon with a detour through sedonna, we are staying at a lodge on the canyon rim, bright angel i think. Canyon viewing in the evening followed by star gazing at night and catching the sunrise at the canyon.
Day 8 is going from the grand canyon to roswell NM (we believe aliens crashed here) on the way we are driving through the painted desert to I-40 and hitting the meteor crater going to albuquerque and cutting down to NM 380 to roswell it cuts through lincoln where the story of billy the kid happened also there was nuclear testing out there, so we think of the movie the hills have eyes.
Day 9 in roswell we just want to go to the ufo museum and the crash site cafe, soon as we do that we are going to carlsbad caverns and then heading to amarillo for a hotel and BBQ
Day 10 is amarillo to hellinois about 13 hours getting home late sunday night
Rate this trip, offer any ideas, thanks
