That is incredible you figured this out...

I'd be concerned with the length as well. Double check your available length.

Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon is only 400 miles from Phoenix. Easy day's ride.
Some of the roads are almost at 9000 feet, so check on weather conditions first. Awesome views! Take your best camera!!!
