Grand Circle Trip from Ohio

Jump to last reply

I'm not sure if I should have continued on my posting from July or start a new one, so forgive me if I should have done the former. I have been doing my homework about taking a 2-3 week trip to the Grand Canyon. We leave in a few weeks and will be driving from Ohio. We are fairly convinced to not stop in Las Vegas like originally planned because of suggestions from all of you (another trip someday). I have also taken suggestions of the Grand Circle because there is so much more to see than just the Grand Canyon. I would like to share my possible itinerary and see what you all think. Please share with me if there are places we should miss or stops I haven't mentioned. This will probably be the only time we make it to this part of the country. So we want to see as much as we can but still enjoy it. We think we will start by bringing I-40 in and going clockwise, taking I-70 home.

1) Petrified Forest/Painted Desert - we really want to stop here
2) Grand Canyon - Southern Rim - definite
3) Kanabe ?
4) Zion NP
5) Bryce Canyon NP
6) Grand Staircase/
7) Lake Powell
8) Arches
9) Canyon of the Ancients and Mesa Verde - I think we would enjoy the Trail of the Ancients, I'm just not sure where to put this in our trip? It just looks different from the other National Parks.

There are so many other National parks in the northern part of the circle but I know we can't get to them all. We have probably added to much to our trip now.

Please, I'm looking for advice. It can be so overwhelming.

Thank you,
