Planning aug 2013 trip start lv ( have a 15 year old i have to please who is not into national parks). The route i am thinking of is: lv to zion 1 night, then to bryce 2 nights, moving on tio lake powell for rainbow arch 1 or 2 nights (unsure advice please). I really want to see a slot canyon i beleive antelope canyon near page has these do you need a guide to help you find your way. We are family of 4 youngest 13. Whenwe went to yesomite we used a guide to do a full moon hike to sentinel dome and were really please we did, hopefully that gives you an idea of our limit of braveness.
Also are ther huge sandunes at page?. then moving on to Bluff for monument valley, then either Durrango for the train trip or williams for the gc train trip . We have also been advised to take in seddona. then back to lv for a couple of nights for the 15 to coaster it out then fly home. we have abouit 18 days. Please any advice would be appreciated, even if it knocks my plans. I know lv and its not my first choice however I have a lot of boxes to tick on this trip for 4 people. Cheers ali
