We did a Utah National Parks trip late last August. Flew into Salt Lake City went to Zion, Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef. You need to spend a few days at each place to really see more than the highlights from vistas. Amazing drive from Bryce to Capitol Reef on Highway 12 and we did a hike to Lower Calf Creek Falls in the Grand Staircase-Escalante on the way. I advise anyone that goes to get the Lonely Planet Guides to Zion & Bryce Canyon National Parks book to help plan your trip and hikes.
