I am planning a trip to the Southwest in April or May. This is the itinery I was planning. Any suggestions or guidance would be appreciated.
Fly To Vegas on Sat and stay one night (been to LV before).
Sun drive to Zion. Visit Zion Sun and Mon.
Tues drive to Bryce.
From Bryce I am going to head part way toward Arches (sleep somewhere in between), then visit Arches. My first question is whether I should spend 2 days at Bryce and one at Arches or vice versa?
Thursday in Arches. Head toward Mesa Verde in the evening.
Friday Mesa Verde, head toward Alb. NM in the evening and spend Saturday Alberquerque.
I am debating between spending a day in Alb. or some time in Moab or some other place in between Arches and Alb. (flying out of Alb so need to head toward there). Any suggestions?
Sunday fly out.
I would also appreciate some recommendations for horseback riding or possibly a ranch to spend a night.
Lots of info! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
