We are planning 5-7 day trip to visit Grand Canyon, Sequoia National Park around June 13-20, 2010. I will be traveling with my parents, both senior citizens so there will be minimal hiking or walking. We will by flying into Las Vegas area and renting a car. Our main goal of this trip is to visit the Grand Canyon, which we will visit first. Is there a train ride available at the Grand Canyon without taking the train from Williams, AZ. The 2 day trian packages from Williams appear to offer very little time at the Grand Canyon, but appears to be the only option for train travel in the area or at the Grand Canyon. After returning to the Las Vegas area from the Grand Canyon we would like to spend the remaining few days traveling up to see the Giant Sequoia's and whatever we can fit in along this route. This is the portion of the trip I am having the most problem with planning. We have not purchased air fare yet and would like some feedback. I will include my rough travel plans and please include any suggestions
