An 11-day/1600-mile road trip covering National Parks of Utah and Arizona – including Zion, Bryce, Arches and the Grand Canyon. Travelers included our family with 3 kids ages 6-13. Enjoyed hiking among and above hoodoos, canyons and arches. Stayed in a variety of accommodations. Month of travel: April.
It’s spring break time in the states and most people I know are leaving gray-brown / no-leaves-on-the-trees / not-warm-enough-for-shorts Minnesota for tropical locales with warm beaches and plenty of sun. Meanwhile, our family is prepping and packing for an epic road trip through Utah and Arizona. The forecast is not-warm-enough-for-shorts, and there are times I have questioned our spring break plans. Until I remember why:
Because hiking. We love it. Besides family togetherness and lots of driving, we plan to hike the hell out of some national parks.
