We are landing (and flying back) in salt lake city. We have 10 days for our trip and we are confused by all the information out there. We have a toddler and a baby, but we like hiking (a few miles trails). Can anyone give us ideas how to plan our trip DAY by DAY.

Where would be the best place to sleep (including camping in a tent). Other ideas for visiting nice places in the area are welcome.

We were thinking of visiting the northern rim of the grand canyon, Zion park, Bryce canyon and lake Powll.

1. Is this too much for 10 days?
2. Is it a "must" to see the southern rim of the GC (that would
involve a lot of driving)
3. Where should we book our nights?
4. Are there any other advice for places to see in the area
5. Is it possible at all for us to walk down to the canyon- even
just a bit for the views, and then back up?

    Great idea!! Total drive is about 1300 miles and 10 days is about right. BUT it depends on a lot of variables. You can camp at several of these areas. What time of year? Yes, the South Rim is well worth the extra driving. You can hike down the trail as far as you want. I’d suggest only a half mile given your situation. It is a steep hard climb coming out. Consider the new observation platform if you have lots of money. I’ve seen figures of $40 plus entrance to tribal area. You will be on a wonderful Grand Circle tour. Las Vegas and Lake Mead can be readily added. Travel a bit each day and see something new each day. Don’t spend much time in restaurants, pack a lunch and eat in your room for breakfast. I do this type of trip a lot and am envious of yours.
