    • Arizona/Utha in Fall

      Arizona Jan 29, 2017 at 9:49 AM

      Hi :)

      I need some advice for travel. I want to go to Las Vegas this fall and then drive by car to Grand Canyon and etc.
      My plan looks like this:

      First Day - Pick up the Car, drive to Hoover Dam and then to Tusayan

      Second Day - Visit Grand Canyon. We are not really "hiking people", so everything that takes more thatn 2hrs round trip is probably to much.But as i seen on then internet, most places are pretty accesible by car or shuttle.

      Third Day - Drive to Page, visit the Slot Canyons arount 11 AM (tours start then). and visit Horseshoe Bend in the afternoon

      Fourth Day - Drive from Page to Bryce Canyon (about 3hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Fifth Day - Visit Bryce Canyon

      Sixt Day - Drive to Springdale for Zion NP (about 2hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Seventh Day - Zion NP (visit The Narrows)
      Eight Day - Zion NP - What should we do too?
      Ninnth Day - Spend morning in Zion then drive back to Vegas, Anything nice to see on the way there?

      What do you think, is it a good plan? Should we spend less/more at a specific place? We have read that roads in this area are usually straight and not crowded, so driving shouln't be a hussle.

      Any help is appreciated

    • Group to Canyon De Chelly

      by gohawkeyes1 Online Now Feb 23, 2016 at 7:51 AM

      I am thinking of bringing a group of 27 people on a day trip from our mission trip (new Mexico) in a few weeks ranging from 6th grade - mid 50's. Would you recommend seeing the pullouts from the two rims and doing the one hike? How strenuous is the hike? Or would you recommend finding a guide to take us around?

      Best outline for a driving trip solo to the Navajo Nation area

      by DJStarr Online Now Oct 7, 2014 at 8:38 AM

      Hi fellow travelers,

      I've had recurring thoughts about the Canyon de Chelly, Antelope Canyon, Grand Canyon, Zion/Bryce NP areas and think a nice road trip is in my near future. I'm from Colorado and have traveled extensively in the west, but never really explored these regions. Would anyone please share ideas for incorporating these area/regions in a great 2-3 week road trip for the end of October-November timeframe? Links, websites, leads greatly appreciated.
      I have a tent (but camping solo as a woman?) but also can stay in cheap clean hotels/B&Bs/homestays, etc. I just want a meaningful (not totally touristy) experience. Are there gifts that I might bring to the Navajo Nation that are needed? Books, clothes, ideas?

      I teach English and writing and do some artwork - so sharing my skills might be a good volunteer experience to offer the tribe, too. I've volunteered worldwide through HelpX.net and find that when I travel I enjoy most meeting locals, sharing my skills and talents, having a more intense and personal experience. I speak some Spanish, love taking great photos, enjoying regional cultural events/festivals and telling/hearing good stories.

      I'd be driving from northern CA, have family in Las Vegas and Phoenix/Tucson but may not make it that far south.
      Thanks for any time, thought and effort offered by you, my fellow world travelers!

      DJ

      Overnight trips into the canyon...

      by worldtrekker Online Now Apr 21, 2012 at 5:05 PM

      Does anyone have first-hand experience (good or bad) with any of the outfitters offering overnight trips in Canyon de Chelly? I will be there in early October 2012, and an overnight in the canyon is something I'm starting to look into. Thanks!

      Rim overlook drives

      by lazyman_1 Online Now Jan 6, 2007 at 12:57 PM

      I'll be visiting the park this upcoming March and I want to do both the north and south rim drives. On my map of Arizona it looks like highway 7 runs along the south rim to Chinle and then highway 64 runs along the north rim from Chinle to Tsaile. Are these the rim overlook drives or do you first have to enter the park at chinle to to access the drives?
