I bet this has been covered somewhere but i will put it out there to see what the latest input may be. We are going to take a road trip from Houston to Grand Canyon after my son gets done with finals. I am guessing around the 12th of December. It will be my wife, my son and daughter, 20 and 28 and myself. Not a big time limit. Say be back before Christmas so roughly twelve days. My son wants to see some route 66 stops and i know we need to be weather aware. Will be taking my four wheel drive Tahoe so good vehicle in case of snow. Any feedback on some good stops and maybe hotels along the way this time of year would be appreciated!! It looks like there is some availability at the south ridge hotels once we get to grand canyon.
