Southern Utah and GC Trip Cont.- Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

I have come up with a rough draft itinerary for our early Sept. trip. My husband and I welcome any and all suggestions. Just a reminder...we are in our early 50's and like the outdoors, driving in beautiful scenery, hikes that are not too terribly long, neat eateries.

Day 1: Arrive 12:10pm in LV from East coast
Rent car and drive to Springdale/Zion(hope to stay in park or close to entrance)
May have time to do a short hike this day

Day 2: Explore Zion(Riverside Walk, maybe Angel's Landing)

Day 3: Drive to Bryce
Navajo Loop to Queens Garden
Spend night in park lodge or near( any suggestions?)

Day4: Would like to drive Scenic hwy 12 a ways, but would need to make our way to
Page through Kanab.
While in Page we will do float trip and Glen Canyon Dam tour since we are
probably not going to get to see the Hoover Dam
Need other suggestions for that area
Spend night in Page(any suggestions where?)

Day 5: Make our way to Monument Valley (either morning or afternoon,depending on
what else we may do in Page)
Stay overnight in MV

Day6: Take guided tour with Navajo guide
Drive to GC south rim
Stay overnight in park or near(if we can't stay in park..where else?)

Day7: Explore GC
Start back towards Zion(will go hwy. 89)
Stop at Cameron's for visit,
Don't know whether to stay overnight somewhere in between GC and Zion

Day 8: Arrive Zion , spend time in park and overnight there.

Day 9: Leave Zion and head back to LV for 11am flight departure.

Like I said, this is rough draft itinerary. Thought the route from GC back to Zion would be more scenic than going back toward LV the other way. Thought it would be better to spend last night in Zion.
Need lots of help with this.
Thanks!
