DAY 02: DRIVING DISTANCE: 165 MI / 265 KM
LAS VEGAS – ZION
Leave the man-made wonder of Las Vegas and travel through the desert to the Colorado Plateau and the natural wonders of the National Parks.

DAY 03: DRIVING DISTANCE: 90 MI / 144 KM
ZION – BRYCE CANYON
Travel to central Utah and visit the majestic hoodoos of Bryce Canyon. Nature’s artistry has created rocks in various shades of red, formed by erosion into pinnacles and spires, even more stunning against the blue skies of the area.

DAY 04: DRIVING DISTANCE: 155 MI / 249 KM
BRYCE CANYON – LAKE POWELL/PAGE
