Help with itinerary to Include Monument Valley, Mesa Verde and Moab

Jump to last reply

I need advice on a 10-day trip DH and I are planning with our DS, as a graduation gift, right after he gets out of school. We will be driving from Denver, where we live. DS loves the southwest, though other than Colorado, he's only been to New Mexico so far. His main interest is Monument Valley, as he's a big John Ford and Sergio Leone film buff. I told him we can't skip Mesa Verde, and I would like to fit in Canyon de Chelly, if possible (DS is interested in that too). He wants to do some hiking, but as we do a lot of that in the Colorado mountains, that's not a huge focus for any of us. We are interested in native people artifacts and the like; places like Bandelier (near Santa Fe, NM).

My tentative thoughts are to spend the first night in Ouray or Crested Butte, then two nights in Mesa Verde.

After that, I'm indecisive (except we considered Howenweep, and decided we'll pass on that). Down to Chinle first, then Monument Valley. DS REALLY wants to stay at Far View lodge, so we'll do that at least one night. Seems like Kayenta or Bluff are good options for a night or two; both Natural Bridges NP and Comb Ridge sound appealing (Bryce and Zion are too far west for this trip, I think).

We would end the trip by heading up to Moab, a night or two there, then drive home. Everything sounds interesting, but I'm wondering if all of this will start to feel like a lot of the same thing.

I'd appreciate suggestions about how many days to spend in each location in AZ and UT.
