I think I was in danger of hijacking yet another thread.... Apologies to nchulka. I'm looking to head to Sedona for 3 nights; Grand Canyon for 2 nights, Page for 2 nights and Monument Valley for 1 night in September 2013. Hoping to fly into Phoenix and hire a car to drive to Sedona. Any recommendations for a route? I was just thinking of heading up the 17; with stopping at Montezuma's Castle and the Well. I did consider detouring via Fort Verde State Park; but they are closed on Tuesdays (which is the day I'm planning on flying to Phoenix). At the Grand Canyon, do you have any favourite things to do? I suspect that I'm way too late for booking the mule trek; but I was considering hiring bicycles. Anyone done this at the village? At Page, I'd like to go to the Secret Canyon; instead of Antelope Canyon. They offer a photographer's tour (longer duration) for the Secret Canyon and I was wondering if this was worth it. I'm thinking of staying at the View in Monument Valley. I'd appreciate any opinions about this hotel and if you have been, which jeep tour company did you go with? Thanks in advance.
