Thanks for the suggestions

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond. I am really torn because I typically make reservations as we travel, but this will be our first big trip since we both retired and we have the luxury of time. In addition, it is our first trip to this part of the country and I just do not have a sense yet of how long we will need at each area so I would really prefer to not have a rigid time schedule that we have to adhere to. I am not even really sure how many days we will need to get out there. I am thinking I will do a couple LONG days of driving as we leave Michigan, and then slow down and take our time once we get out to the southwest. Maybe we will just plan on making reservations a few days out at a time while we are traveling. Lots to think about I guess.

We too are pondering a similar trip, perhaps just a couple of weeks later. This would push us toward the 3rd week in October to return to Minnesota from Utah. Any cautions as to routes to avoid due to potential bad weather? Mostly thinking about higher mountain passes that have a potential for snow. After all, here in the lowlands we still talk about the big blizzard that dumped on us years ago on Halloween! Would have to assume some areas of Colorado, etc. that might be something to think about.
Any advice?

I've wanted to revisit that area and now this thread gave me itchy feet. Told DW the TT's headed south in September.

She said, "ok, I'm flying back for Christmas.".

All the rest is just wandering with no hint of a schedule.

And in preparation ... read the Tony Hillerman series of books, it'll make you want to visit all the sites referenced in his books.
