I posted earlier about my trip but by some luck I have been able to extend my vacation following LV… I was going to drive to GCNP Bright Angel Lodge for a night and Sedona for one night before flying home from Phoenix. Now I have three additional nights to work with so I would like to add Page and Monument Valley. I was going to spend one night in Page, two in MV, one in GNCP and one in Sedona…. in that Order. My flight out of Phoenix is late evening.
The problem is DH wants to see the Hoover Dam which changes our direction, to GCNP first. I am not sure from looking at google maps if the order should be GCNP-Page-MV-Sedona, or if it is better to wait and go through Page (Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe) after Monument Valley. Does anyone have an opinion on this, or maybe I am distributing the nights in a less than optimal way?
This will be in February using a rental car, so crowds will be low but no 4WD…. if these variables make any difference. I don't think we will be doing a lot of hiking given the weather, it is mostly about scenic opportunities. I am waiting for retirement to spend extended time at the places we like best so it isn't like we won't be back some day.
