I've just decided on the spur of the moment to take a few days and drive up to the Grand Canyon from Palm Springs. I will leave tomorrow, spend 2 nights at the Grand Canyon (have a reservation at the El Tovar) and then slowly make my way back into California. I was just wondering, since I have never done the drive before, what the quickest (and/or most scenic) route would be, and how long it would take factoring in traffic etc.
I was also thinking of driving up to Bryce Canyon from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon for a night, and then driving back home the next day. How long would that drive take up to Bryce Canyon? I'm not in a rush, but would like to be back by Friday evening, so would be prepared to drive all day Friday on the way home.
Thanks a lot for the help!
