I'm planning a trip from Denver > RMNP > Bryce > Zion and on to the Grand Canyon and LA, but am struggling with the Bryce & Zion bit. I see a lot of people are doing it the other way around and staying in Springdale on the way into Zion, but that would be too long of a drive from RMNP to Springdale and back into Bryce.
The plan at the moment is to drive RMNP to hotel on October 19th, explore Bryce on the 20th, explore Zion on the 21st, then on to Grand Canyon on the 22nd. Is there a good location to stay for all of those nights, or is it best to stay near Bryce on the 19th, then near Zion for the 20th & 21st - any ideas of locations are appreciated!
Thanks for any help.
