    • 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

    • Rainbow Bridge in February

      by tocatta Online Now Oct 14, 2008 at 10:28 PM

      My family (2 kids 8 & 9) and I will be visiting Grand Canyon end of February 2009. I was considering a side trip to Lake Powell and specifically Rainbow Bridge. I was worried that it may be too cold on the lake to enjoy the beauty the lake has to offer. I would like to know what you think?
      Thanks in advance.

    • Possible Visit to Rainbow Bridge National Monument

      by ThomasBl Online Now Mar 30, 2005 at 9:43 AM

      My husband and I are considering a visit to Rainbow Bridge. We are interested in the one day boat trip. However, we have received conflicting information regarding the length of the hike from the boat to the Bridge. We have been told it is anywhere from 1/2 mile each way to 2 miles each way. The boat only stops for 1 1/2 hours and we were concerned that the necessary hike would take up most of this time. We would like to spend more than a few minutes at the bridge. Can anyone clarify this for us? Any information is appreciated.
