Can anyone advise me about a trip I have planned? A friend and I will be driving up from Phoenix to Monument Valley, staying 2 nights, then planning to stay 4 nights in Moab. I have done this trip before, in March of 2007. I had a fantastic weather week then with highs in the upper 60's and low 70's, but everyone knew that was unusual and it should have been colder.
Is February too early to enjoy Canyonlands and Arches? Our primary goal is to hike in both parks. We don't mind cool temperatures, but we do mind snow, particulary how it obscures trails :). Most importantly, since my friend is flying in from the east coast, we would like to make sure he's not flying all that way for a stupid idea!
