hi i am currently planning a trio next july/ aug 2013. this is where we would like to go but having looked at a map i think it would be quantity over quality which is not the purpose of our trip, Any D E 's out there please help. We will arrive in vegas 2 adults, 2 kids 16 and 13. We have done a road trip before so not complete rookies. No camps though it has to be lodges/ ranches ( would like to experience ). start in vegas after 3 nights, move on to hoover dam, and grand canyon ( any ranches to actually go in to it and poss raft?) and where abouts is the skywalk and is it any good.
then drive through zion to bryce, i think from the research i have done i would love to see a slot canyon is this the Navajo loop? also thors hammer. How many nights and where to see bryce/ any other must see's ie arches?
then how far on to monument vally and is ot worth it? #
I really fany Moab but i think to far, as then we would gp back to vegas for 2 / 3 nights prior to flying haome. Toatal nights about 18 ish.
Please help any ideas appreciated. Thanks .
