I am posting this on the Bryce, Zion and GC forums. We are planning a trip for Aug 2006. Two couples in 40s-50s, and 5 kids (ages 7, 8, 15, 17, 18). We want to do Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Zion. We will begin at Las Vegas and end at Colorado Springs, or just round-trip to Vegas. We have two weeks.
I would love any advice about what to see along the way, how many days you would stay at each park, great places to stay besides in the parks, things that the kids will love, etc. We are pouring over the guidebooks but want to know what should not be missed from those who love it there. None of us are serious hikers, and that would be limited by the two little ones anyway. But we are interested in things like the float trip.
Thanks in advance!
