    This is exactly right. Also a nice time to brush up on bushwhacking skills. In 30 years of off-trail travel, I have never once encountered a cluster of hikers!

    If you can go after Labor Day instead of before, you will do better with crowds, and maybe also with weather.

    Depending on your route, consider Bryce and Zion. Or further east, the South Dakota...
