Sophie's Southwest RV Trip

Save This Article

“This trip has been on our bucket list for a while, so we decided to go for it this year. Choosing where to go was overwhelming, but lucky for me, my husband was up to the task: over 15 days we visited 11 sites and cities, 5 National Parks, and took about 1 million photos. See what I wore, where we went, and more, below!”

PACKING TIPS

FIRST STOP: LEADVILLE, COLORADO

“Leadville has the highest elevation of any city in the US! It’s got a cool mining town vibe and some neat historic architecture. We just stopped through on our way to Ouray.”


SECOND STOP: OURAY, COLORADO

“This old mining town is surrounded by breathtaking mountains. We did the famous Perimeter Trail hike.”

THIRD STOP: TELLURIDE, COLORADO

“We just spent a day in this mountain town. Taking the gondola to the top of the mountain to overlook the town was a highlight.”



FIFTH STOP: MOAB, UTAH

“The landscape was unlike anything I’d seen before. One of our favorite activities was the hike to see the famous Delicate Arch."


SIXTH STOP: THE GRAND CANYON, ARIZONA

“I highly recommend going to the North Rim as opposed to the South Rim. There were only a handful of other people there, plus the weather was cooler!”


7TH STOP: SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO

"Home to the oldest public building in the states, this city is rich in history, beautiful architecture, and has a bustling art scene."



RV TRIP TIPS

8TH STOP: SAND DUNES NATIONAL PARK, COLORADO
