Bryce vs. Zion?

I don't see how you can rate one over the other. They are both amazing and totally different in what they have to offer and both are worth seeing.

My wife made the observation at Zion that it was one of the few canyons that you drive down into and through at the bottom instead of looking down into it. True.

Yes, I was referring to discounts inside the park. No discounts at Ruby's. The shutlles stop at the hotel and in front of the campground.

We did the whole Utah NP tour a couple of years ago. Each park has somehing to offer. My wife wanted to spend more time at Bryce to have time to hike down into the canyon.

Last trip was early May - 95 ar Zion and snowing at Bryce.

Just returned from Bryce and Zion. Amazing despite record heat (110 plus at Zion). Crowds were small which was great. Ill post more later but although a quick trip (only 1 location with 2 nights, all the other stops were 1 night), it was great. Kind of a scouting trip for future says too, we also hit pRovo, Salt Lake City, and the salt flats. Whew...and back to work tomorrow.

Did you hit Moab (Arches) by chance? We are heading there in September and I was wondering what you thought of it. Thanks!

Tnblondie.. Arches is a great place. The road in from the main street takes you about 16 miles to the campground. It is NOT a big rig friendly campground. . Tight sites. We stayed outside the park and drove the Grand Vitera all over the place. Even did a little "off roading". Parking is limited. If you drive the rig through, it will be hard to find a place to park, to walk to the "arches". If I remember, the drive down to Canyonlands was about 150 miles round trip. Also route 279, West, is a nice drive.

We did not, we only went south of SLC. Gives us more reasons to go back to Utah!

Thanks for the info!!!!

Our toad is a Jeep, so I'm really looking forward to doing a bit of off-roading. And we're staying out in town and will toad around to Arches, Dead Horse and whatever else we find

If you have the time, go a little out of the way and see Goblin Valley. IMO, it is worth the drive.
Enjoy!

We have 3 full days / 4 nights at Portal RV resort, north of the city. Hiking is iffy for me, so we will be doing some driving, I'm sure! Thanks for the advice!

Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Arches NP all have their own beauty and wonderment!!! Here's a shot of each when we visited them earlier this year.

Blackcell. Sooo true. We spent a month on our trip to Utah. Not enough. Who would of thought rocks could be so awesome. We seen about 80% of those places you listed.All are a must see.
WE just returned from the Black Hills/Badlands, beautiful, but not as awe inspiring as Utah. Would love to return for 6 weeks, but looks like next year it will be Louisiana/Mississippi and the gulf.
