Southern Utah Photography
I am planning a short trip to the Southern Utah area in early October.
I will be staying at Springdale, UT for a few days where I plan to shoot Zion National Park and surrounding areas.
I will then stay at Panguitch, UT for a few days and plan to shoot Bryce Canyon, Brian Head, Yankee Meadows (I just love that area) and Cedar Breaks.
I will then spend a night at Cedar City, UT because I want to shoot the Kolob Canyon area of Zion national Park.
From there it will be on to Las Vegas, stopping for a night and then home to San Diego County, CA.
Can anyone think of any areas I have missed that are somewhat convenient to the loactions in which I am staying (motorhome and tow vehicle).
I will be carrying three cameras (30D, 40D and Canon D60 set up for full-time infrared). I plan to take my12-24mm Tokina, 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens, 70-200mm f/4 Tokina, 300mm f/4L IS lens, 1.4x TC and I will probably take my 24-70L (which I normally use primarily for studio work) since my 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens, being EFS, will not fit on the D60. I will take CPL filters, a ND filter and a GND along with two tripods: my primary Giottos MH-8180 with MH-1300 head and a SLIK 330 Pro which I have modified by switching to the shorter center column to save weight and using the MH-1300 Giottos head. This small tripod and head is relatively sturdy and weighs only 3.7 pounds; making it a good "boonie tromping" camera support. As always, I will take my 550EX and 420EX flash units along with remote releases for the cameras.
One nice thing about a motorhome trip is that I am not constrained about taking gear. Additionally, does anyone have any suggestions as to equipment.

Re: Southern Utah Photography
I'm very famaliar with all of those places, however I'm a tent camper and I still go loaded for bear as I see you are. Have fun and happy shootin'. Equipement sound very good. The road between Panguitch and Cedar Breaks is wonderful but if weather is heavy with rain or early snow the roads could be closed. I guess you have been to Vegas before, just stay away from the crap tables and the one-armed bandits(slot machines)! Have fun
