I think if you look at the weather historically you will be coming at a really good time. The chance of snow is there but not a terrible chance of deep snow that would accumulate. Any later and you would roast your nuts in all of the lowlands not to say that you would need a cooling suit and have to tow a water tank behind you through Death Valley. There are a few places higher than Flagstaff that you could go but not many here is a link to the historical weather data for Flag. http://www.intellicast.com/local/his...ation=USAZ0068
When you are on your way back from Page, I would take a few mile detour and check out Walnut Canyon. http://www.nps.gov/waca/index.htm
Also, just my opinion, but I would rather spend the money on a helicopter ride to and from Havasupai than go to the giant piece of glass where no pictures are allowed. http://www.havasupaifalls.net/waterfalls.html
The hike to the falls and Colorado river are a bit strenuous but if this old fart with a defibrillator can do it, I am sure anyone can. (I didn't take the helicopter in that was maybe a mistake btw)
Also, may be out of the way...They did much more to preserve our gem of a cave. It is pretty f-ing amazing btw http://azstateparks.com/parks/kaca/
Good luck to you. I think the timing is right, -Paul
