I just finished reading your TR... your photos of Antelope Canyon were great. That was our one disappointment of the trip (we stayed 2 nights at Lake Powell Lodge) was that we did not get to go to Antelope Canyon because the day before there had been a flash flood while tourist were in the Canyon, fortunately no-one was hurt!

We stayed at Best Western Grand too... we liked it alot and loved the large rooms after coming from the cramped rooms at Lake Powell Lodge.

Thanks for posting brough back good vacation memories!

WOW! I've been MIA for a little bit and you've finished your TR. Those are great pictures of Antelope Canyon. Only 200 pics? You must have been very restrained!


Thanks for sharing.

Now I have inspiration to visit Zion and Bryce. It has ruined my late summer planning to DLR. I want to go hike and camp now.

Sorry you didn't get to see Antelope Canyon. It gives you a good excuse to go back again. Try going in early June before the rains come. I know flash floods can be very scary.

We really liked the Grand too and thought it was much more "quiet" than Ruby's.

Thanks! I know, what was I thinking to have only taken 200! But, it's not the quantity, it's the quality, right!

Gorgeous pictures! I'm going to the Grand Canyon South Rim for the first time and am very excited about it. I've been able to book room at the Kachina Lodge. Looks like I'm going to have to get me a new camera!

It's something I feel I should do on the way to DLR. Always go down I-15 and think they are almost just off the freeway. I just need to take the time and do a longer trip. Maybe more pictures will help.

Thanks for the enticing pictures.
Joining in a bit late but.... early Oct last year was plenty warm. in S UT - I took my DH *goodness back then just my boyfriend* on this same National Parks tour - I really impressed the Brit He enjoyed Zion the best.

OP ~ fantastic fotos *aren't we lucky to live so close to these beautiful places?? Have you been to Arches/Canyon Lands NPs? Those are DS's favorites.

As I said ~ I took DH last Oct *2010* and we took the kids + my mom to the same parks *Bryce was covered in snow, Zion was lovely and the North Rim was still closed* in March of this year. We also visited Yellowstone & Grand Teton *they're really close to us here towards the top of UT.

Thanks! Yes we are! We also enjoyed Yosemite, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. We were tossing around a possible trip farther north into Utah to see Arches/Canyon Lands NP in the next year or so. It looks like lovely country.

I'm making my way through ur TR's disneyfaninaz! We did a pretty similiar trip back in 2010..takes me back.

I think I took around 200+ of Antelope Canyon alone too! It's crazy how many people they let through it at one time, amazing sight though!

It's a shame you missed Horseshoe Bend, it's definitely something. I was hoping while you were in Zion, you ate at Oscar's in Springdale, if you ever go back Oscar's is a must!! Great food.
