We will be staying in Bryce for 2 nights (after Zion) and then will travel to Page staying in our motorhome at Wahweap campground for 2 nights. After Page we will be staying 3 nights after the Grand Canyon for 3 nights. We want to do Lower Antelope Canyon and possibly Upper. To avoid leaving the campground and marina area on our only full day (we plan to do water based activities and tours there) we are thinking of doing a the Canyon tours on the way to Page and as we leave Page. We arrive in Page Sat. May 26 and leave Monday 28 (Memorial Day). It seems to be approximately 3 hours to Page from Bryce and the same from Page to Grand Canyon. So we could do one Canyon mid-day on Sat. the 26th on our way from Bryce and do one in the morning of the 28th as we head to the Grand Canyon.
I know there are sights to see along the way for both routes (the Dam, and Horseshoe Bend) so we don't want to rush but there is no need to arrive at each campground before early evening. So which should we do in the mid-day slot and which in the morning? Does it matter in terms of sunlight? Could we possibly do both Canyons in one of our time slots? Seems like doing both would take about 4 hours with wait times so we could do that 1:00-5:00 on the 26th or 9:00-1:00 on the 28th. Last question...is it safe to leave our motorhome parked at the Antelope Canyon Tours parking lot? We will be making our reservations soon so thank you for any suggestions.
