My wife and our two kids (ages 4 and 6) have a ski holiday with friends in Breckinridge Colorado in early January. We have 12 days of holiday prior to meeting our friends. We are coming from Australia and will be most likely landing in Los Angeles. We were hoping to do a road trip from LA to Breckinridge in that time encompassing the best of the South West National Parks (Grand Canyon, Momument Valley, Moab, Shiprock and others). We are happy to include Las Vegas but would like the trip to mostly be national park related rather that city/culture focussed.
Does anyone have any advice/tips or “must do’s”. Will there be any major road closures along that route? I must also add that, coming from Australia, we have zero snow driving experience.
Thanks in advance.
