I need help making a decision on what to see during one of the last legs of my road trip (SF-Yosemite-Sequoia/Kings Canyon/Death Valley/Las Vegas/Zion/Grand Canyon North Rim/Bryce/Arches/Canyon Lands/Mesa Verde/Monument Valley/Grand Canyon South Rim/Phoenix/Joshua Tree/SD/LA/Pacific Coast HWY to SF). I can't decide on what to tour between the following two options:
OPTION #1: Monument Valley-Canyon De Chelly-Grand Canyon South Rim
OPTION #2: Monument Valley-Antelope Canyon-Grand Canyon South Rim
I have only one day to do one of these options. I would love to see both Antelope Canyon and Canyon de Chelly, but unfortunately, geography limits my choices. I will start near Monument Valley at sunrise. Any suggestions? What do you guys like?
Also, I want to drive the scenic 17 mile unpaved road that meanders through Monument Valley. Has anyone driven this scenic road of late? Is it possible to navigate with an AWD sedan? I look forward to responses. Thanks.
