Help plan our 2 week circle tour of AZ,NM,CO, UT, ..OK, KS?

Jump to last reply

We fly into Vegas from TN 9-15 arrive abt 7:10 have a car rented and head out. We plan on driving till dark before stoping for the night (where?) and doing the south rim of the grand canyon the next day.

We have to be back in Vegas the afternoon of the 25th for a concert we have tix for. Plan on staying there till we fly home early 9-29. We've never been to Vegas and plan on seeing the sights at night and maybe taking day trips or resting by the pool during the day.

Now the hard part! What we want to try and see in between. We don't hike or camp and will have a car so no off roads. We enjoy driving and seeing the scenary and stopping as the mood stikes us.

We want to work our way from the south rim of the grand canyon on across the top center part of AZ. Most scenic drive? Sedona, Apache Indian Reservation? What to see on the way to NM? On across NM to Santa Fe, a place we've always to see. From Sante Fe I would like to take the nearest route to cut into the panhandle of OK and then the bottom SE corner of KS before heading into CO. See Mesa Verde, most scenic drives ?, on to UT - Brice, Zion, Escalante, lots more!

Then back to Vegas.

What I need to know is specific routes to take to see the best scenery. Reasonable places to stay, et.

We don't mind driving and put over 2200 miles on our rental car when we did a grand circle of the North East coast and came back down thru Canada from Montreal to Toronto a couple of years ago. We did it in 2 weeks.

I'll post a trip report when we return.

Give me some routes and ideas :)

Thanks,

Mary
