|Subject: Grand Canyon plus Bryce, Zion, etc.|
My parents were there last week, and had a great time. They mentioned that
it was imperative to keep drinking water, because it is so dry. They kept a
big thermos in the car, and kept refilling it with ice &water so they had
cold water all day. Also, they visited the South Rim and stayed at the
Quality Inn there, which is just about 5 miles from the Grand Canyon. I'm
sure it was reasonably priced, knowing them. Right now it is shuttle bus
season, so they were to park their car at the visitor's center and shuttle
to the canyon rim. My mom asked about accessibility since she has polio and
uses a cane. They asked if she had a handicapped plate, which she does, so
they were given a secret code to get through the gate and were able to take
their car in.
I haven't been there myself (which is dumb...it is only a drive away) but thought I'd pass along these little tips.
