My two choices are Calgary to Las Vegas, or Phoenix. I'm guessing Phoenix is the better choice but would appreciate info on the proximity of the canyon and the air museum. Comments on where to stay would be great as well.

Thanks

Garrett

P.S.
I promise I'll post my pictures. I'm really enjoying this thread. The pics of the warbirds are great. The Police helicopter shots are cool as well.
If you're from Calgary you could start at the Alberta Aviation Museum in Edmonton. I hear there is some controversy about them wanting to sell the museum's DH Mosquito to a British collector.
