Day 1 - Arrive at Grand Canyon early afternoon. Settle in, go for a walk, eat dinner.
**QUESTION: Where in the village can one get a decent meal without reservations?
Day 2 - Hike throughout day - Rim Trail.
**QUESTION: Weather pending, I'd love to see the grand canyon at night. See the stars and maybe indulge in some night photography. Any tips on being around GCNP at night?
Day 3 - Hike throughout day - Partway into canyon. Dinner at El Tovar Dining Room & Lounge. (reservations made)
Day 4 - Drive to Page, AZ. Mid-day smooth-water raft tour. Photograph Horseshoe Bend at sunset.
Day 5 - Visit Lone Rock Beach -- maybe have breakfast out there. Mid-day photography tour of Waterholes Canyon. Visit the Great Wall.
**QUESTION: Any recommendations of places to eat in Page AZ for Dinner?
Day 6 - Drive to Tucson. Take a scenic drive of Sedona. Possibly try to hit one trail at Red Rock State Park? Arrive in Tucson in evening. (Not entirely sure if this day is realistic. I'd like to do a trail, but who wants to do that in the middle of all that driving? Would love to hear of any alternatives for the area.)
Day 7 - Visit Santa Catalina Mountains. Need to pick a morning trail hike. OR visit 4th Avenue Street Fair. (Any locals who have visited this fair think it's worth it for an out of towner? I may be burnt out with hiking at this point.) Spend evening at an observatory. Nerd out. :)
Day 8 - Visit Saguaro National Park. **May need more to do this day! Any recommendations?**
Day 9 - **Personal day** Drive back home.
**QUESTION: Recommendations for dinner in Tucson? Apparently, all I care about is food. Hah! We are staying just south of Old Tucson Studios.
