Help Me Estimate My Time from Sedona to GCNP with Stops

So if I leave the BW Sedona Arroyo Robie at around 8am on a Thursday morning in July en route to my two-night stay at El Tovar, stopping along the way at Sunset Crater, Wupatki Ruins, Cameron Trading Post for lunch and a leisurely look around, and all/most of the recommended overlooks along the East Entrance of GCNP, what time would I finally be checking into El Tovar? This sounds like too much. I am wondering if I should leave Sunset Crater and Wupakti for my return trip from GCNP to Sedona, where I will be staying for three additional nights. Thanks.

That doesn't sound like too much to me. You probably can't check into your hotel room until the mid afternoon anyway.

Check in is 4:00 at the lodges inside the park but I would want to arrive before the sun starts to set so plan your day accordingly!

It's not too much at all. You should arrive El Tovar around 4PM. Ideal.

Thanks for your help! I agree mcNOLA1 - I'm not sure how I could have planned this trip without the help of the wonderful people in these forums!
