      getting to Moab

      Moab Apr 7, 2014 at 10:59 AM

      My husband will be going to Moab for a conference and I'm helping with the travel itinerary.

      We fly from out of state and I wonder if there is a major airport closer than Salt Lake City (yes, I am doing more research on this myself, now, too) --

      Also, once we get to the major airport of choice, what is the best driving route to get into Moab?

      Thanks!

      After running the half marathon in Cedar City we want to tour/hike the parks: Bryce, Zion and North Rim. We have seven days. Do you have any suggestions--time frame and lodging recommendations? Should we keep Cedar City as a base lodging or stay somewhere in Bryce Canyon after the marathon? Thanks!

    • Vegas to Bryce

      by rachelfromabroad Online Now Apr 21, 2013 at 2:27 AM

      I am planning an overnight trip from Las Vegas to Bryce Canyon in early June. I already booked the lodging in Bryce Canyon for the night. I am making the trip with my elderly mother and am the only driver. I am arriving from overseas to take her to Bryce and Zion and a couple of days in Vegas. A friend heard that I was planning to drive on my own and contacted me that she thought it wasnt a good idea. she said I could drive for hours and not see another car on the road and when she did it years ago, there was no cell reception for good parts of the way. I was planning on driving from Vegas to Bryce, sleeping over and then seeing Zion the next day on the way back from Vegas. should I re-think this and take an organized tour. I am a good driver.

      Road Conditions in March around Bryce Canyon and Southern Utah

      by Joseph69 Online Now Jan 6, 2013 at 9:08 PM

      I have booked a car (convertible, do it in "style" without the heat) and will be driving from LA, then to Las Vegas, Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP, Monument Valley NP, Grand Canyon NP and back to Las Vegas.

      I noticed to get to Monument Valley from Bryce Canyon, I can take a scenic route via the road UT-12 and Highway 95 South via Escalante and Boulder. Of course, we will stop somewhere overnight so we're not rushed.

      I cannot find any information if roads are closed during the colder months (as opposed to Yosemite NP in California, where many roads are announced closed and I adjusted my plans). It appears not much precipitation develops around southern Utah as opposed to other high country areas in the World.

      Is it safe to drive in March?

      Your assistance is appreciated.

      Cheers,

      Joseph. :)

    • North Rim Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion then on to Yosemite and SF

      by abwd1698 Online Now May 16, 2012 at 6:31 AM

      My husband and I are planning a trip in early September, starting in Vegas and taking in the Grand Canyon (probably north rim), Zion, Bryce, then on to Yosemite and ending in San Francisco. I don't want to spend all my time in the car driving past sites, so wondered what a good time frame would be to really see these 4 national parks. Also, is it advisable to make hotel reservations ahead of time for outside the park, or do we just wing it and find a place when we decide where we want to be? OR, would making reservations in a town that is within driving distance of GC, Zion and Bryce be the best way to go and then do day trips to whichever park we want to visit? I am allowing us about 2 weeks before we get to SF to take in these 4 parks.

    • Vegas, Bryce, and Zion

      by rotini Online Now Jul 25, 2010 at 8:18 AM

      Okay, I have read about Bryce and Zion National Parks. I will be home based at the Grand Chateau Marriott in Vegas. I think I can scoot back and forth to Zion. I guess the question I have is, can I go to Bryce and see enough in one day, including the sunset, and then head back to Vegas? Or should I plan on staying in Bryce overnight and then maybe hitting Zion on the way back? Also is Cedar Breaks worth a trip while heading to Zion? And would going to Zion and Bryce for a two day trip be the best bet?
      Just looking for itineraries from those of you who have made Vegas the home base. As you may know the Grand Chateau is grand; I have a three bedroom unit and will want to put stakes down there.
      Any advice is appreciated. I have read other postings from those who are more "on the road" than I might be.

      Weather in September in Vegas and Canyons? Is it very hot still?

      And, if any of you have stayed at Grand Chateau in a three bedroom, how easy would it be to rent out the one bedroom? It is separate and full functioning with kitchen. September 17-24 are dates. I have never even considered this option before and am not sure where to start.

      Hi

      We will be spending 2 days in Utah, with our base in Tropic UT- nestled between Bryce & Zion parks. We will reach Tropic bet 6-7 PM & we have the whole day next day followed by few hours in the morning the day after. My wife has bad knees and cant walk for long. I want to make best use of the time to see all the good stuff.

      We will be driving down from Jackson Hole and I presume we could see some enchanting stuff on our way. What is the best route from Jackson Hole to go thru the scenic spots.

      What is the best way to see both the parks or is it better to focus on only one & if yes, which one. Can we see all the places just driving.

      I appreciate any & all tips, suggestions and links to Information sites.

      Thanks in advance

      Hi,

      My wife and I visiting the area from Australia in June on a photography trip and are visiting Bryce Canyon from Vegas and then on to the Grand Canyon North Rim.

      We will have an afternoon and an evening on the day we get there and then a morning the next day. Our aim is to capture the landscape variety as much as possible in the time we have (including night photography). I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out in deciding which are the must see spots for Sunset / Sunrise and Night and which loop trail would be best?

    • Star Trail Photography

      by johndsouza Online Now Apr 22, 2007 at 4:17 PM

      As per the web, Bryce has one of the top three darkest skies in the US.
      I was wondering if anyone has tried star trail photography at Bryce?
      I am planning to be there for a couple of nights the 4th of July week.
      Though it is not a moonless night (moonrise is just around midnight), would anyone have recommendations for north facing (Pole star facing) views that would look nice with star trails?
      Furthermore, since I would be aiming for a 2 hour exposure around 10 PM, are there things I should be concerned about in the dark (mountain lions, scorpions, any critters I am not exposed to in the cold north east :-) I plan to set up the camera, hop back to the car, and then pick up the camera 2 hours later... but I may try a few experimental shots at ISO1600 before the 2 hour shot, to see what the exposure looks like!
      Thanks!

      I posted this in the N. America forum and now I can't find it!
      We have ten days starting Oct 14th to drive from Las Vegas around Grand Canyon, Bryce, Monument Valley, Lake Powell and back into LV. I don't know what to expect weather-wise. I'm assuming that summer-holiday clothes will be OK for LV, but others have said that I could get rain (rain? In a desert???!) and it can get quite cool in the national parks because of the altitude.

      So for walking around the national parks : jeans or shorts? Cagoule? Fleece? Vest? Sweaters/sweatshirt? T-shirt and light cardigan?

      PS We are 50, not 18!
