Subject: Re: California Grand Canyon Trip
Hello, i'm not sure about La, but my wife &I flew to vegas rented car &drove to Grand canyon in about 5hrs. We stayed right on south rim at the Thunderbird lodge; they also have small cabins (Pretty old-but what a view-only few feet from edge of canyon). we drove on day trips all along south rim. this was around April 1st couple years ago. It was great-not very crowded &rm was reasonable. I'm told that in the summer time you have to park outside &take bus into park &everyone jams the rails to look over the rim.

For us I found it was cheaper to fly into Vegas or Phoenix &rent a car than to try &fly anywhere closer to the Canyon. Nice , pleasant drive from vegas also.

Good Luck,
