I'm not sure if I'm out of place by asking this, and if I am, by all means delete it. BUT.... I'm in the military, stationed in Maryland right now, and next month I'm driving to LA en route to Hawaii where I'll be living for the next couple years. Its going to be myself, an upper intermediate rider, and my girlfriend an upper beginner on the trip, and I'm just trying to figure out where in the southwest are the best places to go. We're going to be getting to Santa Fe as quick as possible, then hit up the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Canyonlands, Zion, maybe Sequoia. Are there any great places that you guys would suggest out there. I'm not looking for a roadmap (I post on a surf forum, and hate the guys that come on looking for a handout about the best spots and when there firing, basically not trying to do any of the work for themselves), but some suggestions would be great. I've been watching the mags, and talking to the guys in all the local shops, but I'm thinking this would be a great outlet for some info as well.
Thanks in advance, and once again, I guess I'll understand if I get pounded for asking, but I figured I'd try.
