Western U.S. trip

I worked a bunch of OT last year and banked the time as comp time. Now I'm cashing in. I'm going to leave mid-May and return mid-June. I have finished the route sort of. It is in two pieces because the one file kind of screwed up.

I will be camping along the way with the occasional hotel. Some of the places I plan to stop include:
Painted Desert
big hole in the ground meteor site near Winslow
Hoover Dam
Grand Canyon
Horseshoe Bend
Antelope Canyon
Zion
Cedar Breaks
Bryce Canyon
Grand Staircase
Canyonlands
Glacier
Black Hills
Badlands

I am still fully open to changing the route. In fact, I don't expect to stay on route once the trip begins. If people have suggestions, please let me know. I've never really been out west before (once to Boulder for bicycle riding). The list above is primarily generated from others' suggestions. Please provide input for other parks to hit, roads to ride, places to eat, etc. I'll be sure to report my ride as I do it.

Funny... I'll be heading to Asheville, NC in mid-May to explore the Smoky Mountains until mid-June. It's funny how that works... isn't it? Anyway, safe travels... I'm positive you'll enjoy every minute of it.

I'll be sure to wave as we pass each other heading home. I get to ride the Smokies anytime I want (and do often). Let me know if you want any pointers or tips on where to go.
