Trip Report Trip Report: Fantastic Father-Daughter Zion & Bryce Canyon Graduation Trip

Jump to last reply

Four years ago, as a high school graduation present, a friend of mine and I took our daughters, who are close friends, on a fantastic guided rafting trip down the Colorado River into the Grand Canyon to Phantom Ranch, where we hiked out:

Now these wonderful young women, who were roommates this year, have just graduated from college. They insisted on a reprise adventure with the dads. Due to work schedules, we had to alter a planned five-day hiking/canyoneering trip to Moab (Arches and Canyonlands), instead switching to a shorter trip to Zion and Bryce Canyon. We planned the following itinerary:

Sat. May 23 - Graduation
Sun. May 24 - Fly into Las Vegas, drive to Zion, hike Angel’s Landing
Mon, May 25 - Hiking in Bryce Canyon
Tues. May 26 - Canyoneering/rappelling trip with Zion Adventure guides from Springdale
Wed. May 27 - Undetermined morning hike, afternoon return to Las Vegas, evening flight from Vegas

While not quite as ambitious as our Grand Canyon foray four years ago, the recent trip was equally exhilarating. Details to follow as time permits.
