Seeing the restrictions on Antelope Canyon, I'll probably cross that one off the list. I have no idea which day I'll be there and it's not like other spots haven't been added since my initial post. I'm only semi-retired so time is still an issue.

Ranger Tim: Thanks for the altitude heads up but this isn't my first trip to elevation. Highest so far was a week above 10,000' on the Grand Mesa in CO. Drink LOTS of water and until you feel acclimated, and even then, "walk like you're retired." [emoticon] I'll be there late April, is your North Rim suggestion still an option? I was contemplating heading north from VotG into Moab before heading back via Denver. Sounds like a few days in that area are worthwhile also.

Thanks again all.

Actually the tours of Antelope canyons are still on, they just don't want professional photographers consuming everyone's time. You are welcome to take snapshots with your phone. May I suggest the boat tour of the other Antelope canyon from Lake Powell also, it's a pleasant journey especially in summer's heat. Don't forget to take the tour of Glen Canyon dam also. It's pretty neat.

Yes, but it seems a reservation is still required. Not sure summer heat will be an issue late April, but I'll look into the boat tour. Thanks.

As I said before - boat tour to Rainbow Bridge is great adventure and beautiful scenery. Even my wife who is so-so with boating enjoyed that.
Than Horseshoe Bend is just minutes on other side of Page and with elevation drop it beats most of Great Canyon.
Talking about North Rim, you will find nice area for boondocking just few miles from park gate.
No need to pay high fee at park for smelling your neighbour sewer.

See it before it's too late

We had the pleasure of being guided by one of the settling families in this canyon. We listened for hours as he told stories discovering artwork, ruins and artifacts as we hiked around with him. One of our greatest times in Utah
