Please help with itinerary

In late August/early September, my husband and I are going out west for about 2.5 weeks. We would like to fly into Phoenix, stop at the Heard Museum then drive to Sedona for a night or two. Then:
Grand Canyon North Rim two days
Antelope Canyon
Monument Valley
Bryce for two days
Zion for two days
Then we drive to CA to visit a relative and stay in Sonoma for 4-5 days
Fly home out of SF

I have maps but don't see exactly where Monument Valley is. I'm only hoping it's close to the GC. I googled the distance from GC to Antelope Canyon and got something like 5.5 hours which seems too long.

After Zion, we'd drive through NV stopping at Great Basin NP for a day and overnight. Is it reasonable to think we can get from Great Basin to Sonoma in a day or should we stop near Tahoe, or Reno? I realize we are late in planning this, but I do have reservations at the Bryce Canyon Lodge on a Weds &Thurs so we can hopefully do a stargazing night on Thurs. I will keep calling GC North Rim for cancellations. Any advice will be appreciated. If it helps, we could fly into another airport, but then we'd probably skip the Heard and possibly Sedona (which I've seen before but would enjoy another visit).
