My husband and I will be travelling to Phoenix from Toronto, Canada and driving from Phoenix to GCNP then to Page. We will be arriving Page on Aug 31 and leaving Sept 2. Since this will be our first trip to Arizona, I would love to hear what some of you think about our itinerary in Page. Our plan in Page are as follows:
August 31 (Monday)
Arrive in Page later afternoon after hiking at the South Kaibab Trailhead in GCNP, visit Horseshoe Bend
Sept 1 (Sunday)
Taking the ADVENTUROUS ANTELOPE CANYON PHOTO TOURS starting at 8:30am, which includes visiting the 4 canyons: Upper Antelope, Rattlesnake, Owl & Mountain Sheep (6.5 hours)
Possibly doing the Night Tour with them as well which starts one hour after sunset (around 9pm) for 2-3 hours.
Sept 2 (Monday)
Taking the Boat ride to Rainbow (7:30am to 2:00pm) and possibly another one of the cruise
Leave Page and drive to Sedona
- is this too much to fit into the time we are spending in Page?
- the weather forecast is saying that there is a chance of rain on Sept 1 and a couple of thunderstorms for Sept 2. I heard a lot about flash flooding and usually they would close the canyon tours. Usually how far in advance will they do this and what are the chances? Should we make alternatively arrangement to go elsewhere if the weather will be that bad during the days we want to visit page? I just don't want to take a chance to go all the way there and ended up doing nothing. Our whole trip is only 6 days.
- I read in other post that highway 89 will be reopened on Aug 29. Can someone direct me to the page where I can look at updates on that? I can't seem to find it ...
Thanks in advance for all your inputs!!
