Southwest in 7 days? Help with road trip!

Jump to last reply

Just found out we are going to have to cut our road trip to 7 days now .. ughhh. HELP! I'm so confused.. everything that is top of our list are the furthest apart! Figures! Here is what I had for 10 days:

Day 1 - Arrive in Albuquerque, pick up rental car at airport
Drive to Santa Fe - 1 hour
Day & night in Santa Fe

Day 2 – Santa Fe to Durango, CO – 4 hours
Night Durango

Day 3 – Durango, CO to Moab, UT – 3 hours
See what we can when we get there
Dead Horse Point state park
Fisher Towers
Night in Moab

Day 4 - Moab - Arches all day
night in Moab

Day 5 - early day in Canyonlands
Moab to Monument Valley – 3 hours
Stop at Four Corners option – adds 2 hours
Night in Monument Valley

Day 6 - Monument Valley day
Head to Page, AZ 3 hours
In Page, need 3 hours to do Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon
Night in Page

Day 7 – Page to Grand Canyon 3 hours
Explore GC
Night in GC

Day 8 – GC to Sedona 2 hours
Pit stop in Williams, AZ (might skip this)
day in Sedona
night in Sedona

Day 9 - Sedona to Pheonix
day in Sedona
Sedona to Pheonix 2 hours
night in Pheonix

Day 10 - drop off car at Phoenix airport
Fly to Cabo!

The only thing set in stone is our flight from Phoenix to Cabo. The rest is open. Top of our list:

Sedona
Grand Canyon
Arches National Park
Monument Valley
Santa Fe

Maybe we just need to be realistic and cut Santa Fe? Hubby will not be happy. If we don't do it this time, I doubt we'll ever go just there/NM on its own. Sighhhh

Any help is greatly appreciated! ! ! :)
