Too much driving? Touring SW with 9 year old
Hi, I'm looking for tips for a trip the 2nd half of August - starting in Ft Collins (we have friends there) and planning to do a loop: Ft Collins, Glenwood Springs (1-2 nights) - Moab (1 night) - Cedar City (2 nights) - North Rim Grand Canyon (2-3nights) - Page (1 night) - Mesa Verde (1 night) - and back to Ft Collins. Do you think this is too much driving, considering there will be a 9-year-old in tow? Any places we should consider staying longer? Also, would a hike to Phanton Ranch and overnight be out of the question?
