We are planning a two week trip starting and finishing in Las Vegas for the beginning of May. (Short notice as we have just received notification of work rotas!) We have a rough outline of where we would like to go but would appreciate some help with the specifics. I have read various things on the RTA site but would still appreciate some input as to whether or not the plan is possible within our timescale?
My basic plan is to fly into Las Vegas stay a night or two, head up to Zion, then Bryce back down to Kanab then onto Lake Powell and Antelope Canyon. From there, head out to Monument Valley and then back to the Grand Canyon North Rim. After this I am a little sketchy as I am not sure what the next best route would be – should we head down to Flagstaff and along I40 to Kingman then back to Las Vegas or would we be better to head back through Colorado City and onto the I15?
We plan to camp all the way (I am assuming it's possible to camp in all the national parks and other places along the way?) We would like to do as much walking and exploring as possible and also some kayaking at Lake Powell or anywhere else it's possible.
I guess my main questions are:
Is this route possible in say 12 days without time to enjoy it?
Have I chosen the best route?
Am I missing anything which we need to see in this area?
Given our short timescales, any advice you can give would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
