Utah Parks Itinerary (and What to See Between Capitol Reef and SLC)

Jump to last reply

Hi, there -- we're planning a trip to Utah in early September. We're flying into Las Vegas on a Sunday, and out of Salt Lake city 10 days later. Here's the itinerary so far:

Day 1 - NYC- LAS - Zion
Days 2-3: Zion
Day 4: Zion to Bryce Canyon
Days 5-7: Bryce Canyon
Day 8: Bryce Canyon to Escalante or Capitol Reef
Day 9: Escalante or Capitol Reef to SLC
Day 10: SLC - NYC

Whaddaya think? Is that a good amount of time in the respective parks? Thoughts on Escalante vs. Capitol Reef? A Utah transplant in NYC told me she loves Escalante, so I was leaning toward that.

Also -- how's that five or so hour drive from Escalante/Capitol Reef to SLC? Is it scenic? If we wanted to break it up, is there anywhere good to spend a night?

Thanks very much for any advice.
