RETAKING MY PLANS FOR UTAH'S NATIONAL PARKS (LONG LOOP)

Jump to last reply

We are three couples (70's, 50's and 30's) on the initial stages of planning our 14 day trip to Utah's National Parks (had to cancel last year due to health issues). Trip will start and end in Las Vegas (October 12-26, 2011). This is my tentative schedule:

Oct 12 - Arriving Las Vegas and stay overnight.
Oct 13- Las Vegas to Kanab (the animal shelter is a must for my wife). Stay overnight.
Oct 14-16 - Kanab to Lake Powell (visit Antelope Canyon and Rainbow bridge).
Oct 16 - Lake Powell to Moab (pass through MV- been there before). Should I overnight in Bluff or Blanding?)
Oct 17-20 Moab (Arches, Canyonlands, Gobling Valley)
Oct 20 - Overnight in Torrey
Oct 21 - Torrey to Bryce thru Hwy 12 (overnight).
Oct 22-26 - Las Vegas (I know i'm bypassing Zion), but my family insists in staying at Las Vegas for three nights. Maybe I could convince them to, at least, spend one night in Springdale).
Need your input and opinions regarding the pacing and places to visit of this trip. We are not hikers. We enjoy greatyly natural wonders and will do some easy hikes.

Thanks in advance

Gilberto
