We suggest taking your time and choosing 3-4 parks to really enjoy, plus taking in some sights along the way. Your trip will lead you right through the heart of the Grand Circle, a collection of seven national parks, eight national monuments, numerous state parks, scenic byways, historical sites, prehistoric Indian ruins, colorful ghost towns and stunning geologic formations. Take some time to explore some of these places, including Zion, Canyonlands and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.

For more information check out www.grandcircle.org and www.utah.com/nationalparks/grandcircle.htm. Some suggested itineraries are available at http://www.utah.com/itineraries/grand_circle.htm.

Bryce and Zion both offer shuttle options so you don't need to take a car everywhere in the park. Check out this article for more information on the shuttles, with links to the official NPS sites with more detailed information.

The weather can vary from 59 degrees to 27 degrees.  In my opinion, that's a little chilly, but everyone is different.  Most people I know would say that's a beautiful time of year to travel to Bryce and Zion.

Bryce Canyon is high elevation (around 9000 ft) so can be chilly and/or snowy by October.   You can have nice days in Oct, depending on the year, but expect fall weather.  Zion is much lower in elevation and should be quite a bit warmer that time of year, though nights will always be cool in the canyon.

There's usually whitewater rafting at most national parks. Both Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks offer something in the line of whitewater rafting, kayaking and canoeing. To get more information on this, I'd suggest contacting your local AAA club for travel books/maps/guides or you can check online under a search "whitewater rafting Utah". Enjoy your time in Utah, it's a lovely state!
