I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I'm thinking of ducking out of my New York City life for a month to live out of a mini-van. I am looking for warmish weather, wonderful scenery with lightish crowds where I can be alone if desired, and areas that are big and vast. I have researched and found some recommendations...Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Big Bend National Park, Monument Valley, and Moab Utah...can you vouge for any of these? Am I missing some gorgeous ones? Is there a route that can be recommended?
I don't want to stay in the same spot and will likely want to move around and perhaps visit some interesting towns in the area. You know of any good stops from NY down to the southwest?
I have never done anything like this before and know nothing about the area. I am just itching for an experience outside of this congested city for some lone time and will have a month free from Mid Feb to mid March and want to be comfortable outside with no more than a fleece. Thanks for your help.
