We are planning trip to Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion and then up to Yellowstone in Aug/Sept. We are flying into Las Vegas and will spend a couple of nights there (because you have to) but then want to find a place that we can use as a base to visit Grand Canyon, Bryce, Antelope and Zion over 4-5 day period before heading up to Yellowstone. On the map, Kanab looks to be a good contender and, as long as we visit GC North Rim, everything is within 1.5-2 hours drive.
The idea is that we will probably do some hiking, but nothing hard core, so am assuming 3-4 hours on the ground plus drive time for each location (although Grand Canyon will probably warrant more attention).
What have other people done? Is Kanab a good centre or are we losing out by trying to keep to one base?
All advice, experiences gratefully received.
