Would love your thoughts on a road trip I have planned for late October (I am not a local so any tips would be greatly appreciated!). Starting LA - Gil bend (1 night); Tucson (1 night); El Paso (1 night); Marfa (2 nights); Carlsbad caverns (1 night); Santa Fe (2 nights); stop over suggestion (1 night); lake Powell (2 nights); Sedona (1 night); stop over suggestion (1 night); Palm Springs (1 night); back to LA.
A few other questions... Is the road from Santa Fe to Lake Powell okay this time of year not too steep/lonely/dangerous?)? Are there any better routes for the trip and other roads i should avoid/include. Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
By the way I will take a trip to grand canyon on route to Sedona and include Oak Creek Canyon on route to next stopover.
Thanks in advance!
