Grand Junction to Las Vegas

Hi all - The hubby is again going to Denver on business and as we have been to the immediate area before thought this time about taking the train across the Rockies to Grand Junction and then hiring a car and traveling across to Las Vegas. What we would like to know is:

Is this feasible?

What should we plan to see?

How long do you think we should allow?

We plan to fly back to Denver at the end, as we have to catch the plane from there, but is this a workable journey.

Thanks in anticipation

How long do you have. It's absolutely do-able, the question is, do you want to see a lot along the way or just head straight to Las Vegas?

We made a similar trip stopping in Moab to see Arches and Canyonlands (allow at least 2 nights), then going to Lake Powell, then on to the Grand Canyon, then to Las Vegas. We saw amazing sites but it was a lot of driving. A week would allow you to have a very nice trip.

I think a train across the Rockies followed by Cavaletta's itinerary sounds like fun!
