My 13-year old son and I are visiting Arizona in late June.
The day after we hike back up from the floor of the canyon (Phantom Ranch), we will be driving friends back to the airport in Phoenix (1 pm dropoff) and then heading out towards Canyon de Chelly.
Would you advise stopping in Winslow for the night (at La Posada) or continuing on to Chinle (Best Western)
We will need to be at the Tonsonii Ranch at 9 am (Daylight savings time) the next morning.
Since I am unfamiliar with the condition of the road between Phoenix and Chinle, as well as the sights missed if we took the interstate, your suggestions would be appreciated. The room rates are about the same. La Posada would seem to have better food according to the reviews.
