It was a fun trip, I'm nolonger in Oregon, so this was a 'moving trip' to Arizona, figured may as well see some places along the way!

I won't miss the Oregon rain!!!!

I have a few others of the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley coming up.

Did you take a tour, or did you explore the area by yourself?

Laugh! Neither! My car Baaarrreeeellllly made it to the View Hotel because the ice (don't drive a rwd vehicle on summer only tires!! I need a Jeep!), and I got there past sunset. Was too late to book a tour but I do have this one on my list as two people I met in Zion as well as one at the hotel strongly recommended:

Now that I'm in Phx, MV is a days drive

Only caught sunrise (which wasn't that amazing) and some night shots with a half lit moon (kinda blah):

Yeah stay at that hotel, totally worth it as every single room actually has a view, and the food was good/reasonably priced.

I heard from several people that you want to avoid the "cattle carts" that show up at sunrise trying to get people to join for tours; Apparently they are rushed, not really photography based, kind of a cash grab scenario.

Otherwise you can drive your own vehicle on some sections. Given the cost of a paid tour for photography is only $70 and gets you off the beaten path and in the best lighting = money well spent in my opinion. Some of the photos this couple shared with me that had did the tour were just PHENOMENAL!!! So there's the photography part, and there's the actual enjoyment part of not feeling rushed, which they both agreed it was worth the cost/time.

Thank you for all the additional info. Every bit will help plan a better trip. $70 is well worth it for a photography oriented tour.
I wonder if 2-3 days are enough to see a good part of the area.

For Monument Valley, 2-3 days with 1-2 photo tours = phenomenal photos!

I'd plan it for a New Moon for some night photography if you can!

It's taken me about a week, but I've read all of this thread! Picked up some really useful information and tips which I will put into practice.

I bought my first DSLR quite a few years ago, a Rebel T4i/650D, but found that with the 100-400 that I bought for birding that I was missing shots because of the burst rate and buffering, so early last year I bought an 80D which certainly addressed that problem. I've had some success and have posted in the Birds part of the forum on occasion.

The 80D has the 100-400 glued to it and so I'm thinking of getting another body for my original interest of landscapes. I still like my 650D and get good results and it's used for walkabouts and holidays with the 18-135 on it.

I thought the 90D would be an obvious choice for birding but the 90D thread still throws up questions over the AF (I don't want to get into red spot focussing thingies) so I'm unconvinced at the moment. Maybe use the 80D for birding and 90D for landscapes/everything else? If a 7DIII does materialise that could be the ideal addition? So for now I'll stick with what I've got.

Many, many fantastic photos in this thread which have really shown me what can be achieved with the 80D
and showed me that I need to up my game! Using the camera more would help!

My wife uses two 80Ds. She has the EF-S 15-85 on one, and the EF 70-300 II on the other (the 100-400 II was too big and heavy for her). She's very happy with her setup. She carries both when she shoots using a double BlackRapid strap:
