The WEST. Vast space. Many options. Must tell us what you are interested in.

Sedona is beautiful. What do you like to do? Fishing off Catalina Island
near LA is fun. Or snorkeling there.

Santa Barbara is a beautiful coastal town to visit. Not much to do there except play tennis, but lovely. Lots of wine country in that area.

What are you going to do for 4 days in LA and 4 days in San F. ?

Lake Tahoe is a nice area. Do you want nice restaurants or nice camping?

You are really talking about the "west Coast" not the "WEST", in a way. DO go to Yosemite. You also might like to see the redwoods north of SF. That may be a long time in LA, depending on your desires.
There is the Big Sur coastline south of SF. And you might be able to shave a bit off of Las Vegas and even SF proper.

Thanks for sharing so much info with us. Love the idea of going to the Grand Canyon but that horseshoe that sticks out from the canyon is scary! I would have to go out there.

I wouldn't add more destinations. Just divide you 5 "extra" days among the places you are already planning to visit.

If the horseshoe is referring to the Glass Sky Walk thing, that would be the last place I would go. Not because I'm afraid of it, because it really isn't what most people like about a national Park. Adding a man-made object only detracts. Besides that is the west rim as I mentioned on the other thread.
