I will travelling from Breckenridge in Colorado. I'd like to stop at Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Bryce on my way back to Southern California. I went to Zion over Spring Break and that's why I'm not stopping there in case you are wondering.
I have 10 days total. I will be there from June 1st. Here is how I imagine it.
Day 1: drive from CO to Arches and spend whole day in Arches
Day 2 - 3: Arches
Day 4: Leave Arches early and go to Canyonlands (Islands)
Day 5 - 6: Canyonlands
Day 7: leave Canyonlands early and spend the whole day in Capitol Reef
Day 8: Capitol Reef - Bryce
Day 9: Bryce
Day 10: Drive back home from Bryce
Let me know what you all think about this plan! I'm willing to take out Capitol reef or just make it a stop by drive if you think I should spend more time in other parks. From my understanding, I can spend the least amount of time in Bryce to see the best of it. I'd like to spend the most amount of time in Moab and explore the area even if it's outside of the two main parks.
let me know what you think! I will be car camping the whole time and I would like to do an overnight backpacking in Canyonlands; down taylor canyons and back up via upheaval trail. What do you think about that?
Thanks everyone for all of your suggestions.
