We are an Australian couple, experienced drivers, who want to drive from Denver to Los Angeles via Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and to take the scenic route. We will have been skiing, and will have SUV.

We have allowed about 7 days in total, so it will be a leisurely drive.

Any suggestions on good areas to call in, and what are good towns to stay the night would be appreciated. Where possible we like to stay where we can do our own cooking. Any comments on your experience in this area appreciated.

We are not sure what roads will be closed in winter, so help in this respect would be greatly appreciated. We will leave Denver March 1 2005
