No idea. I started in Phoenix, drove there early in the morning, spent 7 or 8 hours walking around taking pictures and being awestruck, ate at a restaurant in a little village south of grand canyon catering to tourists, then drove back to my hotel room in Phoenix that night.
Fun fact: there's a huge elevation difference driving from there to Phoenix or vice-versa, your ears will pop.
