4 mature -50's-60's adults are planning a 9 day trip to the area. We have previously done the Utah NP tour, including GC (south rim) and Monument Valley. Flying in to Albuquerque (wanted to fly into Phoenix and out of Albuquerque for driving convienence, but too costly to drop rental car off at different location)..anyway fly into Albuquerque drive to Page/Lake Powell. I know over 6 hour drive... Stay 2 nights, rent boat, tour Antelope slot canyon, maybe north rim of gc if time..sugestions? Then drive to Cortez or Durango...need help with this?? On our way we will stop in CdC...south or north rim? Stay in Cortez/Durango 2 nights. Mesa Verde and Rail trip??? Anything else? What town is best? Hotel? Then drive to Taos 2 nights then to Santa Fe 2 nights..I know this is more NM forum but any suggestions on Taos or Santa Fe? Should be we stay 3 nights at one and 1 night at the other? Staying a moderate hotels..trying to stay under $200 a night. Thanks one and ALL!!
