We (a couple in our early 40's) are planning a 4 week trip to the southern NP's in Utah.
Arriving from SLC which route would you suggest (and why)?
1) Zion - Bryce/GSENM - Capitol Reef- Arches/Canyonlands
2) Arches/Canyonlands - Capitol Reef - Bryce/GSEN - Zion
We're planning to stay in all areas a week or so, to have some time exploring all these beautifull places (to much to do ....hiking, scenic drives, birding). And like to relax a couple of days to the end of our journey, sitting at our porch watching the scenery and read a book.
