Help with plan for National Parks Southwest trip

Jump to last reply

This is my 1st time posting, but I have been reading and enjoying the wisdon here for a while.

My wife and I are planning a trip at the end of May 2010 to the Parks.

After scouring the postings here I have made a tenative plan but need some additional help. We are planning to rent a car when we arrive in Las Vegas and here is the plan.

Fly into Las Vegas 2nts

Zion National Parks 3nts hotel in Springdale

Bryce Canyon 2nts Bryce Canyon City

Capitol Reef Nat Pk 1 nt Torrey

Moab 3 nts

Monument Valley 1 nt

Grand Canyon 2 nts

Flagstaff area 2 nts

Fly out of Phoenix

Does this sound like a doable schedule with time to really see things in the areas we are visiting? Is the time of year okay for these places? Will the snow be gone and weather decent. I am not a cold weather person and would prefer resonable temps...50's to 80's.

We would like to see the north and south rim of the Grand Canyon. What would be the best way to approach it? Should we make a detour to the north rim between Zion and Bryce? Should we plan a night at both north and south rim?

I have heard that staying in the parks are best, but right now there are no rooms available for our dates.

None of the plans are concrete and no reservations have been made as of yet. We plan to use ff miles and they are available as of now, but I don't want to wait too long for fear they will be gone.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bill
