I stumbled across the tripadvisor site while planning this trip and have found all your info so useful. Could you look over these sketchy plans and let me know if it sounds reasonable? Thank you sooo much!
Flying into Tucson April 9 and spending a few days with grandma who lives there. Taking grandma, husband, me, two kids ages 7 and 10 and heading north on the 12th. Figuring it might look like this:
Day 1: drive to Phoenix to see brother-in-law
Day 2: drive to Flagstaff see Montezuma Castle NM and Tusayan, sleep Flagstaff
Day 3and4: sleep in Flagstaff and visit surrounding area (such as Cameron, Watchtower, Little Colorado River Gorge, IMAX and Bright Angel Trail hike...?)
Day 5-6:(Easter Sunday and Monday - a problem?) see Wupatki, Sunset Crater, Walnut Canyon and sleep in Flagstaff
Day 7: drive to Sedona by way of Oak Creek Canyon, hike, Pink Jeep tour, sleep in Sedona
Day 8: head back from Jerome to Phoenix by way of Tuzigoot NM and Prescott (seems I have Tuzigoot in here twice!)
Day 9: get back to Tucson
Day 10: We fly out of Tucson on the 21st.
I've used lots of previous posts with Tony's itinerary advice to try to figure this all out. I need to start making reservations so am hoping some of you will let me know if this sounds at all doable.
