I have been trying to plan some sort of road trip, which is now going to be shortened and taken a month earlier then planned. I am only going to have about 10-11 days (possibly 14 days), and would like to see as much as possible.

I am going to fly out to the southwest, or really anywhere out west where a good place to begin would be. It has to be somewhere Soutwest airlines flies though. I would really like to begin in Arizona and go through Utah. I am kinda sad because originally I was gonna get up to Wyoming as well, and possibly Montana, but now that will not happen due to time constraints.

I guess my questions are...what is the best plan for a ten day road trip. I have places I want to see, etc, but I am having trouble figuring out how much time to allow at each place, etc.

I am up for anything. I am going to buy the National Parks pass, because I plan to see a lot of parks on the way.

I really could use some help.

Does it make sense to begin in Arizona or Utah?

Thanks in advance!
