I'm planning on flying into Phoenix, then going to Sedona for perhaps 4 nights, with a day trip to the Grand Canyon. It's been recommended to me to rent a car, even though there seem to be a number of shuttle options between the cities and areas. But I'm worried I'll run into some winter weather conditions, which I really do not want to drive in. What's the likelihood of running into winter precip along a Phonenix > Sedona >Grand Canyon (south rim) route in early-mid February? Are there weather forecasts for what kind of winter is in store for the area? What kind of vehicle do you recommend renting - can I get away with an economy car, or should I upgrade to something for varying driving conditions?
This is a totally recreation trip, where I mostly want to relax with some lovely nature sights, with wine by the fireplace, and some light hiking during the day. Anything else or specific that can be recommended to see in the vicinity would also be much appreciated.
