Memorable parts? It was all memorable because of the variety of the places we visited. We were concerned we might be 'canyoned out' by the time we had finished but we certainly weren't. Tips? This vacation is flexible enough in terms of the walking opportunities to cater for a wide range of ability and stamina. We were somewhat worried about this even as fit 65-70 year olds but in all parks there were different grades of walks available. Really travel light as there are opportunities...
