Best time for 2013 Fall color in Moab, Capitol Reef, Bryce & Zion??
Sep 17, 2013

We don't have dates yet and the primary purpose of the trip isn't for fall color, but it would be nice to see some. I realize that there are elevation differences at these places and not all four will have Fall color at the same time. We'll be driving from Salt Lake > Moab > Capitol Reef > Bryce > Zion and then flying out of Las Vegas to return home.

I've been to these places except Capitol Reef but not in the Fall. I understand that the drive down Utah 12 is beautiful--- Fall colors or not. We'll drive into Zion from the eastern entrance and stay in Springdale.

Also, I'm 72 and those days of five mile hikes and 1500' elevation gains are in my past.

Any suggestions regarding dates and where to go to see color will be appreciated.
