The plane tickets have been purchased and the hotels have been booked for our trip to Utah and then on the Grand Canyon. We are flying into Las Vegas and renting a car to get around. For this trip, Dave and I have some company. Jim and Danielle are joining us on this adventure and we are looking forward to some great times. I need to start seriously conditioning my legs for all the hiking that we are going to be doing. I've only gotten on the treadmill once at the highest incline in my hiking books. Hopefully the weather will be a bit cooler in September and Dave and I can do more outdoor hiking to prepare. Although hiking 6 miles through the flat Florida brush won't be like hiking up a side of mountain in the Zion National Park but at least I'll break my hiking boots in.
The National Parks we plan to visit are Arches, Zion, Bryce and then on to the Grand Canyon. Hopefully along the way we will be able to take in an old Ghost Town and some Native American culture.
This is a great Utah website that I looked at for planning: www.utah.com
