Unexpected South West Trip! Itinerary ideas?

Jump to last reply

I have won an award at work, and the prize is return flights for 2 to Vegas and 3 nights accommodation. I have the option to extend the trip (at own expense), so as we are from the UK, we would like to take this unexpected opportunity to see more of the South West. I'm thrilled as we weren't sure whether we would be able to take a big trip this year following our road trip from Florida to New Orleans last December, so want to make the most of the (hopefully) 2 weeks we will have.

The only restriction is that I cannot take the trip before July (and that suits us anyway), so we were thinking of either October or November. After we have our 3 nights in Vegas, we would like to see the following as we are into photography and hiking:
Grand Canyon
Bryce Canyon/Zion
Yosemite

Having used this forum for a while, I know your first reaction my my questions will be to tell me to go off and do some research, (which of course I plan to do!), but in the meantime, I would be grateful for suggestions of other places to visit, suggested routes (ie, which circular route from/back to Vegas to take everything in. Do we go east or west first?!), and how long you recommend staying in places.

Thanks in advance as ever for any suggestions!
