I'll be visiting the southwest states of the US in 2 weeks. I'm so excited. I need some final help with my itinerary, though. Here's my current itinerary:
Zion NP ; July 12/13
Zion NP - Bryce Canyon ; July 14
Bryce Canyon - Mexican Hat via UT12/24/95/261 ; July 15
Mexican Hat - Monument Valley ; July 16
Bryce Canyon - Page ; July 15
Page - Monument Valley ; July 16
I've read that the UT12 is one of the most beautiful roads in the US, I'm just wondering if it's worth the extra travel time. I'll be traveling with three children (18, who doesn't care about the travel time; 15, who kind of does, and one 12 year old who doesn't really care).
I won't have time to visit Capitol Reef NP, so it's just the UT12 I'm interested in. If we drive via Page, we could enjoy Antelope Canyon..
Remember, this is my first trip to the southwest states, and, most probably my last (kinda expensive; 4 weeks with 3 children..).
Thanks so much! :-)
