We'll be traveling from Sedona to GCNP where we will be staying for two nights. We'd like to stop in Flagstaff (although that might end up being a stop on our Winslow to Phoenix route). But definitely want to do the loop to see Sunset Crater and Wupatki ruins.
So...the question is whether we should go from Wupatki to GCNP via the East entrance or backtrack to Flagstaff to use the south entrance. According to the maps, it only adds about 30 minutes to our travel time to enter via the south entrance. If we use the Loop Road from the crater to the ruins, the drive on 89S will be scenery we've not seen. We will also exit GCNP thru the east entrance on our way to Page.
Advice and/or pros and cons?
