Am trying to put together an itinerary for daughter.
The family is Mum and Dad with a 6, 8 and 10 year old. They will be skiing in CO with my daughter from Boston. Probably in the Beaver Creek area. After that - second half of March - they have a week to get to LAX. They want to travel through UT to the Grand Canyon, visiting as much as possible. NPs are high on the list. I have told them about the Junior Ranger program for the children.
My question now is: Since I never really travel with any time constraints, I am finding it hard to give her a route which will take in as much as possible and still get them to their flight on time.
My thought was two nights in/near Moab for the parks there, and two nights in/near the GC south rim for a full day at the GC. Just want them to have enough time at the parks they visit to do the JR program. Not sure whether to include Zion or Bryce, or ?????
A little help with timing a route would be appreciated.
