Very excited to be spending the week between Christmas and New Years in Sedona, at Oak Creek Terrace resort. I've been researching hikes, restaurants etc and watching the weather w interest. Seems like there's potential for several storm systems in a row; in fact I think it's snowing in the area this very evening. Hence, my questions:
when it does snow, how quickly does I-40 get cleared.
what about clearing the road down into Oak Cr Canyon?
I want to drive down into and thru the canyon to Oak Creek Terrace before dark. How long will that take (say from I-40)?
At about what time is it dark there this time of year?
If we keep to the speed limits, can we make it from Hoover Dam (family required stop) to Sedona in 5 hrs?
Any other thoughts?
