Route: Day 1: San Francisco flight to Las Vegas – Kanab (drive through Zion National Park); Day 2: Kanab – Page( Antelope Canyon, Powel Lake, Glen Canyon Dam, Horseshoe bend) – Kanab; Day3 : Kanab – North Rim Grand Canyon – Kanab; Day4: Kanab – Zion National Park – Las Vegas flight to SFO.

Something Interesting: We booked a tour of Lower Antelope Canyon (Page, Arizona) scheduled at 8:20 a.m. and started driving from Kanab, Utah at 7:15. According to google maps it would take around one hour eleven minutes to reach Page which is about 74 miles east of Kanab. We were afraid of being late! As we reached to the tour office, lady at the ticket window asked if we would like to go for a 7:30 a.m. tour? When I asked her what was the current time, she replied 7:25 a.m.! This was quite fascinating for us as we drove east and yet gained time.
