2020 National Parks Trip – Day 5 Itinerary

My 2020 National Parks Road Trip Itinerary

As I began to plan my 2020 National Parks Road Trip that I outlined for you a few weeks back, I began to realize how beneficial it might be for me to share the process I use to plan long road trips.  Believe it or not, even though they don’t include air travel or the other complexities associated with fly-and-stay travel, road trips can be surprisingly difficult to plan.  This is especially true during a global pandemic.  That is why I have chosen to share my detailed road trip itinerary and planning process with you in case it might help you in navigating the planning process for your next big road trip.  I have included links to each day’s itinerary plan, as well as the main itinerary article, below to assist you with navigation.


Day’s Driving Map

On the fifth day of our trip, we will be visiting Mesa Verde National Park and then seeing the remainder of the Canyon of the Ancients National Monument.  As soon as we are done exploring these areas, we will make the short drive north to Moab, Utah.
