Hello. We (Australians) will be honeymooning in the US for approx 4 weeks in Feb 2010. Plan at the moment is 1 week rock climbing in Joshua Tree, 12 days driving around canyons etc in Utah then a week in NY. Tentative route for the middle 12 days is:
JT - Sedona - Page - Moab - Moab - Torrey - Escalante - Kanab - ?Vegas
This will take 8 days and leaves a gap of 4 days before heading into LAX to fly to NY. Options are to climb for a little longer in Joshua Tree, fly to NY earlier, spend more than 8 days doing the Utah road trip.
Does anybody have any thoughts on the planned 8 days. Is it too rushed, too slow or are there useful side trips to be undertaken? Are there likely to be significant weather issues. We will be in car rather than RV.
