    You literally picked all the lamest places to visit. There’s a bunch of interesting things to see, but they’re a bit out of the way. However, you’ve got the time to do it.

    This is what I would do: Dallas, Santa Fe, Navajo Nation (Monument Valley etc), Grand Canyon, Zion, St George UT, Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, SF.

      It involves a lot of driving, but yeah totally doable.

      If you take one awful 10 hour first day you would get to Santa Fe. Then one day to Grand Canyon through Navajo Nation, then another to Vegas, then one shitty last day from Vegas to SF.

      Just start early and take breaks.

    North AZ/southern Utah is great.

    The 89 around Page AZ - close to antelope canyon, powell lake, horseshoe bend, monument valley is an hour, The Wave is close, too. Kanab, UT is pretty and close to like 4 parks.

    Flagstaff and ABQ are pretty, but I'd do ABQ to northern AZ - more "wow holy crap" scenery.

    Oh and the Sandia Mountains are pretty by ABQ. Rented a house up there. Here is where I had to park... downtown is in the valley. Don't mountain drive a Camry.

    You should drive through New Mexico, northern arizona, and southern Utah. If you have time, cut over to hwy 1 and take that up to SF.

      Best idea. The national parks in Arizona Utah and Nevada are out of this world.
