This is how it is for me, so if anyone can repost pictures here, I would greatly appreciate it.

Arches, Dead Horse, and Bryce blew me away. Incredible.
Zion was nice, but so touristy.

Parked in Zion now for dinner.

Now we're in a real pickle. Was supposed to go to Mono Lake and Yosemite, but the road from Mono Lake to Yosemite is closed.

Backup plan was the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, which also closed today.


Suggestions?
Only dead horse no canyonlands? How about great basin as a backup? Or death valley?

I'm surprised you don't go slower to enjoy it more. Bryce should be minimum one day  to appreciate it properly imho       
It's funny but I think I am in the minority that arches was not from my favorites

Bryce was closed above inspiration point due to snow.

We did canyonlands. Preferred dead horse.
Great Basin seems like a shlep. May do death valley though.

Sorry, just seeing this now, don't know if it's too late to still be helpful. Adduming your end goal is SF, options would be:

Goblin Valley (SF will love this) + adjacent slot canyon
Valley of Fire SP + Hoover Dam + Great Basin
Mono Lake toofas + Bodie ghost town (SF will love it!)
Redwoods NP  (go find tallest tree in the world Hyperion = absolutelyepic, though not RV friendly) + Lake Tahoe or Lassen NP
Pinnacles NP
Kings Canyon and Sequoia (but check roads if high passes are snowed in)
Bonneville Salt Flats
Capitol Reef NP
California coast

Hatzlacha! Feel free to call/text/WA for tips on any of the above

Goblin Valley and Capitol Reef were snowed in.
Mono Lake was the plan, but Tioga Pass to Yosemite is snowed in, so that's a 7 hour detour required.
Sequoia doesn't seem RV friendly.

In Vegas now, may do Death Valley and Yosemite, though also with a detour due to Tioga.

Simon and Joe's is highly recommended.

Roughly 30' long and 13' high I think.
