Planning an Arizona-Colorado-Utah trip, looking for some advice

I'd like to go in the spring, as soon as possible just because my work schedule can be hectic. I know the Fall would be better and I may do that if I can't make an earlier trip work. I am not familiar with Arizona, when does the weather get warmer so I can camp on the way and not freeze? I am in the market for a RTT so we will be in that for a night or two and then stop at a hotel for a night. We will drive to Flagstaff to start off and from there head to Gallup, then up to Mesa Verde National Park. From there head to the Grand Canyon stoping at Monument Valley. Any advice on other lesser known stops along the way would be appreciated.

Thanks, Jason

Montrose CO, has some of my favorite buggy trails. 21 rd in Grand Junction can be as easy or hard as you want to make it. Moab is a no-brainer. When were you thinking? I've had my tent collapse under snow in Moab during Easter Jeep Safari.

I was thinking April but if it's going to be cold I will hold off. I don't mind if it's cold, just bring the right gear but my girlfriend is coming along........ I definitely want to get to Moab and Canyonlands if I have the time.

Early April can still snow in Moab. Don't know about AZ.

Saw everything from 32 to 105deg last June in Utah depending on elevation.
