A couple Utah state parks to look at are Gobin Valley SP and Dead Horse Point SP, I hope Bryce NP is also on the list.

The only part of our trip across Colorado was between Grand Junction and Denver on I 70 that was stressful. A couple of mountain passes like Vail @11,000ft kept me on my toes. The rest was a piece of cake.

Love the north rim! Less commercialized. South has a full grocery store but north has more like a camping store. Zion is also a great option.

We stayed at Jacob Lake campground just outside the North Rim for a couple weeks 6 years ago. Enjoyed having smaller crowds and cooler temps. Just were surprised there was no water in Jacob Lake.

Enjoy your trip

I live in Salt Lake City so I have only been to the North Rim. It is incredible. From what I read, I'm not sure I want to make the trip to the South Rim. WAY too many people and too hot. However, I would go to the south rim if I had tickets to ride the train from Williams, AZ to the South Rim.
As far as Utah is concerned, others have given some good advice. Capital Reef Natl Park should also be on your list if possible. It is in the same general area of the state. Just remember, Southern Utah is very hot in the summer.
If you are going to be in SE Utah, try very hard to get over to Durango, CO and ride the Durango & Silverton Senic RR. It is a trip that you will not regret. Mesa Verde Natl Park is very close to Durango.
Guaranteed that this will be a trip that you will always remember.

I hope you enjoy your Grand Canyon trio as much as we enjoyed ours. We drove from Ohio to the GC in April this year. We had beautiful weather the entire trip. The Grand Canyon is breathtaking and brought me to tears..if joy and pride in being an American. Have a great trip.
