Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and I love travelling and doing road trip. I've been doing a few trips along California and Nevada. This is my first plan to drive further east to visit a few major landmarks such as Bryce Canyon, Glen Canyon Dam, Horseshoe Bend, Upper Antelope Canyon, and Navajo Valley Drive, and probably a short stop by Grand Caynon on the way home.
My trip is just a short weekend, so in order to get the most out of day-time, we decide to drive overnight to Bryce Canyon to catch sunrise on Friday morning. I have a few questions regarding the area:
1) Departing from L.A, it looks like we will spend 7 hours on major interstate highways, and it would take another 1-hour drive from I-15 to Bryce Canyon. My question is how dangerous/safe is that 1-hour drive from highway 15 to Bryce Canyon (animal crossing, road condition)?
2) I have read that high-clearance vehicle is recommended to travel in Navajo Valley. I wonder if my honda accord is adequate for Valley of the Gods, highway 163 and other pavel roads?
3) It looks like that highway 89 has been closed due to landslide, is Horseshoe Bend still accessible?
