Looking for some advice for a 10 day to 12 day trip in late September 2013.
We would like to see (at least) Grand Canyon, Bryce, Monument Valley, Zion, not sure what else.
We can fly into anywhere sensible and out of anywhere (not necessarily in and out of the same place) that have flight connections to Orlando, FL. We are 2 "young retired" Brits who live 6 months a year in FL and love to explore your wonderful country. We have a FL driving license and will doing this trip with a rental car, stopping in hotels/lodges.
Looking for mostly sights/vistas though my husband may do short hikes ( 3-4 miles?) without me.
I have found out that I can avoid the extra "one way fee" for the car, maybe because we are not using a US rental company.
One question that comes to mind is to go clock-wise or anti-clockwise (or doesn't it matter) on the trip?
Any suggested itineraries?
