It has always been my mother's dream to see the GC, so I am going to try to make that happen in 2008. She will not fly, so we will be driving from Nashville, TN. (!!) I have never been west of the Mississippi and know little about the GC so I need help. We are planning a 2 week trip. We thought it would take about 3 days to get there and back, so that leaves about 8 days to see everything. We are not really hikers, so will be just seeing the canyon from above. She also wants to see Las Vegas. I would appreciate any advice from the experts on here as far as where to stay, an itinerary, etc. Thanks in advance!
