We are considering a Northern AZ Road trip for early August 2018 for our family of 4 (two girls 14 and 11). Current plans are out lined below. We are Looking for a sanity check on distances, difficulty of drives and reasonableness of itinerary as well as thoughts on time at each location and any "must do" activities. Right now we only have lodging set at GC and Monument Valley and we are early enough to move those if needed.
Day 1 - Arrive in Phoenix around 1PM and drive to Sedona
Night 1 and 2 - Sedona - leave early for GC
Day 3 - Drive to GC
Night 3 and 4 - GC South Rim - Thunderbird Lodge
Day 4 - Leave Early for Page hit Horshoe Bend on drive in from GC, visit Antelope Canyon
Night 5 - Page
Day 6 - drive to MV - Navajo Tour
Night 6 - Monument Valley - View Hotel
Day 7 - Drive to four corners...if kids get their way (I know it's out of the way and not much there), drive to Sedona
Night 7 and 8 - Sedona
Day 9 - fly home from Phoenix
Should we consider taking a night from Sedona or GC to add a day in Page for rafting, etc? If so were would you recommend cutting?
