Suggestions for routes from Grand Canyon to Las Vegas

Could someone suggest a route from Grand Canyon to Las Vegas.

We were thinking:

1 night Grand Canyon

1 night Monument Valley - probably staying in Page

1 night in Bryce Nat Park

1 night in Zion Nat Park

1 night in Las Vegas

Drive back to Scottsdale

Pretty fast trip.Can you add any more time? When do you plan to do this?That could make a big difference if in winter.

Page is a couple hours from Monument Valley.Ideally, you would spend a night in each.

Actually I would spend a couple nights in Page and a couple nights at Zion.Maybe take in a raft tour or boat tour of Lake Powell. Again, this depends on what time of year this is.

Thanks for your prompt reply -

No sadly no more time available - so we are thinking we should cut out a few places in between Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.

?Zion or Bryce.

We are travelling early October 2013

A popular trip route is Zion-Bryce-Page-North rim of Grand Canyon. The North rim seasonally closes mid October, so for early October it will be an option. This is a popular route/loop because of the close proximity of each of the destinations to each other.

Given your time allowance, Sedona, GCNP and Page would fit better and require less time on the road, resulting in more quality time at the destinations. That is an element that is lacking in your plan.
