Hi all. First time posting after gaining many valuable bits of information here. My wife & I are going on a 16 day trip from NJ to Scottsdale to Omaha & KC in late August - early Sept. My question is this. After we leave Scottsdale on 9/2 is it realistic to head up to the Hoover Dam & Vegas for a 1 nighter & then swing back to the Nat. Parks of Zion, Bryce & the North Rim to wander north towards Omaha? Or am I better off skipping Vegas (we've both been there) and heading up towards Page, AZ Antelope Canyon and the North Rim area. We are staying at El Tovar in on the South Rim prior to getting into Scottsdale on 8/30. Our trip ends with a 2 day stay in KC to see the Yankees play on our 9/9 anniversary. Also, I'm a photographer so overnight stay recomendations in scenic areas for sunrise/sunsets would be appreciated. Our main concerns are simply to relax on a long road trip, see some friends in Scottsdale & Omaha, see some of our great country and get some awesome images along the way.
