I am planning a roadtrip to the Southwest. The plan is to fly into San Diego, drive around in a loop for a week, and fly back out of SAN. Other than that, things are pretty open-ended. I’ve got a rough list of things to see, though:
- Joshua Tree National Park
- Grand Canyon National Park
- Canyonlands National Park
- Mesa Verde
- Chaco Canyon
- White Sands
That’s the list right now. I’m very much open to suggestions, especially since it’s a little heavy on outdoor/scenic/desert-y kind of stuff at the moment. Anything off the beaten track that I should check out? Let me know in the comments.
ETA: I should be clear, nothing on this list (other than the Grand Canyon) is mandatory. If something sucks, definitely let me know. I mostly chose these sights based on what looked really cool in Flickr, and some word of mouth, and in the case of Chaco Canyon, an obsession I obtained reading Collapse. So anyway. Lots of suggestions please!
