I am planning a 10-14 day trip in early May. My plan is to fly from DC to Las Vegas, rent a car, drive to Death Valley and explore for 2 days (2 nights in the park, if possible). Then on to Moab area, visiting Cedar Breaks along the way. Is 5-6 days enough time to explore Arches, Canyonlands, Natural Bridges? I would try to cabin camp.
I'd continue on to Denver and visit family there, returning the car at the airport. Does this itinerary make sense? It seemed like a lot of back-tracking to return the car to Las Vegas and fly to Denver from there.
Advice please! And thank you!
