I'm planning a trip for the next month and thinking about visiting all these places. My suggestion is to fly from New York (or LA) to Phoenix (or Flagstaff will be better?), rent a car and go to Williams or Tusayan and spend one night there. Next day visit GCNP (till 2-3 p.m. maybe) and go to Page. Then one night in Page, Antelope canyon in the afternoon and going to Bryce for one night (hope to see sunset and sunrise there). Then I'm planning to go to Las Vegas (maybe with one night stop if it is too hard to make it in one day) and spend a couple of days there before my flight to New York.
But I'm travelling only with my son (12 y.o.) so I have to do all this as a single driver. And I'm really worrying about roads (I have almost no experience of driving in mountains), wild animals on them, lack of people on roads (and possibilities of help), etc. So, how do you think, is it safe enough for the woman with a child to make this trip? And maybe some suggestions how to make it easier?
Thank you in advance!
