I am at the start of planning our trip out west. We will be flying to Palm Springs to visit family for Day 1 and Day 2 of our 11 day trip the end of March 2013. After that we are open and I find all of the options a bit overwhelming.
I'll put out a few parameters and see if anyone can help suggest a rough itinerary. From there I can do the research and fill in the details.
My wife and I are in our early 40s and have a 10 year old daughter that is active. We would like to hike the Machu Picchu trail next year so it would be good to have a two consecutive days of hiking at some point to test us. We don't want to camp just two consecutive days of hiking and they can be at different locations.
Based on my reading of other topics, it seems like Sedona, Page and Grand Canyon would be the stops but is that right? We will need to fly home and thought about heading to Las Vegas for a day at the end to fly home.
Lastly if there are any must see attractions at any of the locations that would be helpful as well. Thank you in advance.
