Traveling in October and stuck on whether we have time to work in a Hopi Mesa guided tour.
Here's the itinerary as it relates to this portion of the trip:
10/7 Blanding to Monument Valley via Natural Bridges/Valley of the Gods/Goosenecks SP. 2 nites at The View.
10/9 MV to Canyon de Chelly. North and south rims/White House ruin trail. ?Guided Tour? (Not sure if 2 nights are required.)
Check out Hubble Trading Post on way to Petrified Forest
10/12 Albuquerque by 3pm
A: Can we make Hopi Mesa after CdC, then down to Winslow (possibly Meteor Crater) AND Petrified Forest and Albuquerue by 3pm?
B:Stick to the original plan of Petrified Forest, overnight in Holbrook and be generally relaxed.
So much to see and experience. I'm stuck! Any thoughts will greatly help.
