Bryce Canyon National Park

— 9 nights
You can find hoodoos--rock pillars formed by erosion--all around the world, but those of Bryce Canyon National Park remain the standard bearers thanks to their bright red color, tall stature, and arrangement in large amphitheaters.
Change things up with these side-trips from Bryce Canyon National Park: Cannonville (Willis Creek & Kodachrome Basin State Park). Spend the 15th (Thu) exploring nature at Peek-A-Boo Loop. There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Inspiration Point, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sunset Point, trek along Mossy Cave Trail, and take in the dramatic natural features at Natural Bridge.

For where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Bryce Canyon National Park trip planner.

Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Venture out of the city with trips to Taos Ski Valley (Taos Ski Valley Resort & Hunziger Bowl), La Chiripada Winery (in Dixon) and Abiquiu (Georgia O'Keeffe: Welcome Center, Ghost Ranch, &more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the stunning scenery at Bandelier National Monument, indulge in some personalized pampering at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Spa, take in the views from Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, and don't miss a visit to Taos Plaza.
