Mini Grand Circle trip this October - Southwest NPS - any advice

Jump to last reply

We plan to visit the National Parks in the Southwest this October but only have five nights. We will have stayed in LAS for a few nights before a couple of our party join us and we begin. The current plan

Day 1 - morning drive to Grand Canyon South Rim - best place to catch sunset? - overnight in the park by GC Village
Day 2 - Lookouts via Desert View? enroute to drive to Page, AZ and overnight Lake Powell - arrive before sunset
Day 3 - Antelope Canyon, Fishing or Lake Powell boat tour - overnight Lake Powell
Day 4 - on to Bryce Canyon in the morning - overnight in the park - new moon so hopefully some stargazing
Day 5 - Zion National Park - overnight in the park
Day 6 - explore Zion in morning/early afternoon before drive to LAS with one more night before next day afternoon flight

We have mixed ability in our party of four so hiking would be light...interested in scenic viewing, photography and perhaps some fishing if the opportunity arises. Looking for great view points, dining recommendations and itinerary suggestions.
