We're thinking of taking 9 days for a family trip to see my daughter in Boulder, and then tour a bit. I'm wondering how this works as an itinerary:
Fly into Boulder day 1, spend first night, second day, second night with daughter
Day 3 - leave for Grand Junction, tour a bit, spend night Grand Junction
Day 4 - 'Tour Grand Junction, overnight Grand Junction
Day 5 - leave for Mesa Verda, tour a bit in Mesa Verde, overnight Mesa Verde
Day 6 - Tour Mesa Verde half day, leave for Taos, overnight Taos
Day 7 - See Taos, overnight Taos
Day 8 - Drive to Santa Fe, tour, overnight Santa FE
Day 9 - Fly out Albuquerque
We'd like to see wildlife, landscapes, geographic formations, interesting towns, culture and the cliffside dwellings.
Thanks for any suggestions and advice you might be able to provide! We'll be either my husband (61), me (52), my son (13) and possibly my son (27) and his wife (23).
