I would appreciate any help you can provide. At this time, I have a rough sketch of our plan for July vacation and need some assistance.
We are doing a road trip traveling from Kansas City. We hope to see Yellowstone/Grand Tetons and then move south to see Zion National Park/Bryce Canyon/Grand Canyon and Arches NP. We will be camping w/a pull behind RV.
We are staying at Grant Village campground in Yellowstone. We need ideas for places to camp w/RV around Zion/Bryce and Arches NP.
Here are some of my initial thoughts on the outline. I need help in knowing if # days per location, travel route, and plans seem appropriate. Is it realistic to accomplish all of these or should something be scaled back? We added Arches so that we could loop back to I-70 for the drive home.
I could defiinitely use more specific itenerary suggestions or alternate suggestions if I've missed something. We haven't been to any of these locations before. We can handle easy hikes as we will have our 2 year old in a backpack carrier. My parents will also be w/us.
Day 1 (7/3) Travel from KC to Yellowstone (17 hour drive) through South Entrance.
Day 4 (7/6) Yellowstone (Grand Canyon Yellowstone, Upper/Lower Falls)
Day 5 (7/7) Grand Teton NP (not sure what to see/do here other than Jenny Lake scenic drive) and drive to Zion National Park (9 hours)
Day 6 (7/8) Zion NP
Day 7 (7/9) Bryce NP
Day 8 (7/10) Grand Canyon
Day 9 (7/11) Grand Canyon (mule trip)
Day 10 (7/12) Drive to Arches National Park (6 hours)
Day 11 (7/13) Arches NP (1/2 day) and leave for KC
Day 12 (7/14) Finish drive to KC
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
