I will have 9 days total in early June. I have wanted to see the Grand Canyon since I was about 5( my grandma used to go and got Arizona Highways Magazine, which I spent hours looking at) Now at 55 my husband and I can finally come down from the Olympic Peninsula. But I am getting overwhelmed looking at all the beautiful places there are in Utah! I want to see Arches and Bryce as well as the Grand Canyon. I have never flown in my life . But would it be cheaper than driving down? I would want to rent a car if we flew. I calculated if we drive it would be a three day trip to get to Salt lake city . I'm not keen on driving 10 to 12 hours a day as this is my first vacation in many years and want to enjoy myself.
