So our current plan lands us in Tusayan at appx. 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. on a Sunday evening in a couple of weeks. We will probably need to grab a bite to eat and hopefully see the IMAX movie before going on into the park to check in at Thunderbird.
This seems to be perfect timing as from what I hear, there will be crowds trying to enter the park at that time to see the sunset and they will, hopefully, be exiting the park as we are entering.
My question is this, is this going to be a severe safety problem with the critters on the road? I am a bit concerned because I have seen cautions to others on other threads. If I drive 20 mph will that be okay. It's only about a mile up the road, eh?
