Here is our plan for our upcoming trip and we need some advice.
6/30 My husband and I are going to arrive in Las Vegas at 2:00pm, then get a rental and drive to page. That's about 4.5 hour drive on google map, so we'll probably get to page around 7 or 8ish. We might go to check out Lake powell （Wahweap Overlook?）sunset if we arrive not too late and don't feel too tired. Staying at Comfort Inn.
On 7/1, we plan to do the lower antelope in the morning, then join a 11am or 12pm regular prime time tour at upper antelope canyon. We still haven't decided whether to do the photography tour for the lower, since we are not sure if we'll bring the tripod. And according to the lower antelope canyon tour website, everyone needs to have a (d)slr and a tripod to get a photographer pass. We only have one and I don't want my husband to wait for me for an hour outside. I don't know how strict they are with that rule. How much time does it take to drive from the lower antelope canyon parking lot to the upper antelope canyon parking lot? Do we need to reserve a tour for upper or we can just go? After upper antelope canyon, we are going to horse shoe bend. Any good sandwich place that we can get something in the morning for the lunch? We just checked the weather and it seems that it will be 106F that day, so should we just take the afternoon off and rest in the hotel? Any other suggestion for the afternoon? For the evening, we can do the lake powell sunset if we haven't done it the day before. Or maybe dinner at antelope point marina.
7/2 Glen Dam or anything else that you guys would suggest in the morning, then drive to Moab UT. We'd like to get to Arches NP for the delicate arch sunset if possible. We lose an hour when we go from AZ to UT, right?
Any activities that you will suggest for 7/1 afternoon and/or 7/2 morning?
Clothing suggestions? We are from bay area, so not used to this hot weather. Any bug/mosquito problems? Do we need bug repellent?
Thanks a lot for your help in advance.
