|Day 3||Grand Canyon||Grand Canyon - Lake Powell: 'Grand' is not a strong enough word for today. This morning, take the time to explore the Grand Canyon. Theodore Roosevelt once said, 'This is one of the great sights which every American, if he can travel at all, must see.' Behold those same breathtaking views as we travel along East Rim Drive. Later, a short ride brings you to Cameron Trading Post. For nearly a century, the post has acted as a haven for travelers, traders and explorers.

Travel through the territory of the Navajo nation and arrive in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, a sacred Navajo land featuring iconic sandstone spires; enjoy a fascinating tour, narrated by a Navajo tribe member and a stop at a Hogan, a traditional Navajo hut. Or you may take a canyon adventure cruise through the wondrous geologic formations of the Navajo and Antelope canyons. Later we will enjoy dinner in Lake Powell and some time at leisure.|
|Day 5||Lake Powell||Lake Powell - Bryce Canyon National Park - Zion National Park: Hoodoos! Today, travel to spectacular Bryce Canyon National Park, famous for its Hoodoos.
