We are planning to fly in and out SLC and get a rental car. (or should I choose other airport Two of us. Mom and her young daughter. We have been to Yellowstone, Acadia, Yosemite, and Everglades, to name a few. Interested in ranger programs and easy hikes.
We'd like to do as many parks as we could. Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef, Canyonlands, Arches and a few State parks (Deadhorse). Any place else worth stop by? Please recommend a driving route for scenry and approximate time needed for each place. We will be arriving mid afternoon on our first day and leave before noon on the 7th or 8th day.
If you have recommendation for lodging, I'd be appreciated too!
I know it would not be the best season but my other choices would be in December when schools out. Or should I wait until next spring break in early April? Some time in May?
