We are in the planning stages of next years US road trip. After spending a few days in the Grand Canyon/Monument Valley area we will be driving on to Denver. Will have about 5 days for this particular segment of the holiday Can anyone advise on which would be the most scenic route to take. Options seem te be i) Monument Valley - Moab - Grand Juction and then Denver, or ii) Monument Valley - Durango - Colorado Springs - Denver. The mileage is broadly the same.
It' s just the two of us - will be visting late May.
