My wife and I are planning a trip of 17-18 days, starting in Salt Lake City and ending in Phoenix. On the way, we'd like to see the best scenery that Utah, New Mexico and Arizona has to offer. There are so many marvelous National Parks and monuments in these 3 states that we are not certain where to go and how long to stay in each. Also, we don't know the condition of the roads in and around the Parks and Indian Reservations.
Could you help us with some suggestions of possible routes and times. We have a small car and would prefer to drive on good quality roads. Also, we would like to stay at nice hotels and find good quality restaurants along the way. Do you think Frommers or Trip Advisor can help us too?
Thanks for any advice that your knowledgable members can offer.
