9 Days   Las Vegas, Grand Circle National Parks *Includes Grand Canyon National Park*, Los Angeles, Disneyland (or San Diego) & Universal Studios
Tour Code: LAS/GC9
Departure: Every Saturday (March - October)
Arches National Park contains the world's largest concentration of natural stone arches. This National Park is a red, arid desert, punctuated with oddly eroded sandstone forms such as fins, pinnacles, spires, balanced rocks, and arches. The 73,000-acre region has over 2,000 of these "miracles of nature."
Monument Valley was created as material eroded from the ancestral Rocky Mountains, and was deposited and cemented into sandstone. Visiting the valley is a thrilling experience. As you crest a hill or round a curve, a unique world unfolds before you. The present scene is little changed from that which Hollywood fell in love with in 1938 (when John Wayne and John Ford came to the valley to film Stagecoach).
Antelope Canyon is at once one of the most breathtaking and tranquil places on earth. It is really two separate canyons - Upper and Lower Antelope. Each contains the hidden "slots" carved from the swirling sandstone, and both drain from the south into Lake Powell (once the Colorado River).
