Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have stayed another week or two to visit more parks.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Always check the weather forecast (and history) before entering a slot canyon. You don't want to be surprised by a flash flood!

  • Packing tips?

    Pack for hot days and cold nights.

  • Transportation Tips?

    If you don't have an SUV, rent one if you want to drive in Grand Staircase. The roads are pretty unforgiving.

  • Any surprises?

    National parks are free on national holidays, and we just so happened to visit Bryce Canyon on Veterans Day.
