Moab for 2 days question.

Moab for 2 days question.

We'll be doing the Grand Circle end of May. We'll be coming in from Capital Reef mid morning to Moab for 2 days. Would I be better to save Arches for the second day which would be a full day and do Canyonlands the first day that will be a little shorter due to drive in? I realize you could several days at both. Arches looks to have some nice little hikes that would need a good day.

I do have a 3rd day we could do a little as we roll out to Monument Valley.

Sounds like you have two nights which equates to about 1.5 days. Use the arrival day for Canyonlands, as noted. Do you have Little Wild Horse Canyon included on your drive over from Capitol Reef?

Have fun.

No I really hadn't looked into that one. But I could add it on way in on first day, arches full second day, and hit Canyonlands first part of day 3 before heading to Monument Valley for 2 nights. That still gives me one full day at MV.

That’s almost exactly what we did and it worked really well. Little Wild Horse Canyon is terrific and you should definately look into it. If you can, spend a bit of time wandering about Moab itself it’s a busy little town.

Looks like a good plan. Have you confirmed all of your lodging?

Yes Sir! Took care of it about a month ago. Only place I'd like to improve is maybe Zion. But the rest of the trip we are pretty good... I think so for not knowing! LOL. Trip Advisor is great for info!
