Planning a trip Aug/Sept 2014....7 or 8 nights...arrive PHX from east coast mid morning and fly out of PHX back to east coast mid morning....renting a car. Would like to see Sedona, GC (both N and S rim), Bryce and/or Zion and scenery in between. This would be a "sightseeing" tour...not heavy on hiking.....only short hikess of a mile or less..either by car or park shuttle would be used to "see the sights".
My thinking is 2 nights each Sedona, South Rim, and North rim...1 night (1 1/2 days) Bryce/Zion...and probably the night before departure in Phoenix area. Is that realistic? Should I modify? What would be the best order to do this given the time frame?
Thanks in advance for the expert advice and guidance.
