Seeking Southwest Suggestions

Guys. John and I are leaving for our Ultimate Super Rad Southwest Road Trip in three days. By the time I go to bed I'm sure it will be after midnight and then we'll be leaving in just TWO days! What?! How did that happen? Where did the time go?

There's still SO much left to do! There's tons of lists to write out, errands to run, laundry to do, groceries to buy, a house to be cleaned, and last minute purchases to make! And I don't even want to think about packing for 10 days including camping gear. I can't even handle packing for a weekend trip! Noooo! Oh, and I also need to finish reading the stack of books pictured below. And finish getting together John's birthday present.

In the meantime, I would LOVE to hear your recommendations about what to do, places to check out & where to eat/drink in:

Springdale, Utah
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Sedona, Arizona 

If you've never been to any of these places, I would love to hear about a vacation you have coming up ... or your favorite place you've ever traveled to on a road trip.

p.s. Don't even think about casing the joint once we leave. Winnie and Charlie will be looking out for ya. My parents & sister/brother-in-law will also be keeping an eye on our place. But still, you really want to worry about this little lady! And you especially don't want to mess with this kitty!

We live really, really close to Sedona. It is beautiful, and doesn't host the gross, dull, desert, dry landscape that most of Arizona possesses. There is a creek that runs along the main road and you can stop at many, many, many national and state parks along that road and hike (not really a hike at all) to the creek and have a picnic. It's hot enough now that you can probably swim in it. And the red rock mountains are like no other. Have a great time!
