The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Venture out of the city with trips to Food Tours (in Los Angeles), Vermillion Cliffs Scenic Highway (in Marble Canyon) and Supai (Navajo Falls & Mooney Falls). On the 13th (Thu), hike the day away at Bright Angel Trail. And it doesn't end there: explore the stunning scenery at Grand Canyon South Rim, cruise along Cape Royal, trek along South Kaibab Trail, and stroll through North Kaibab Trail.

Plan my Grand Canyon National Park trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Towering cliffs of red, white, and pink Navajo sandstone, stream-carved slot canyons, and big blue sky all characterize Zion National Park.
Change things up with these side-trips from Zion National Park: Grosvenor Arch (in Big Water), Hurricane (Hurricane Valley Pioneer Museum, SunSoker Tours, &more) and Cannonville (Willis Creek & Kodachrome Basin State Park). Spend the 8th (Tue) exploring nature at The Narrows. Spend the 15th (Tue) exploring nature at East Rim Trail. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape of Zion National Park, cruise along Zion Shuttle, take in the dramatic natural features at Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and don't miss a visit to Observation Point.
