The American dream comes alive in this southwest corner of the USA, as epic landscapes follow one after the other. From staring down into the depths of the Grand Canyon to being on top of the world looking over Yosemite National Park, each day on this trip brings mindblowing scenery. If two-weeks aren't enough, longer itineraries are available that include the ancient cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde, and watching the sun set over Arches National Park.
