Paria Canyon & Havasupai in March/April?

Hey y'all. I'm trying to plan a two-fer for spring of next year. I want to hit up Havasupai and Paria Canyon area---anyone have insight on the weather conditions and temps during that time of year? The ranges that websites are offering are huge and vague.

Big fire near Charleston Peak, NV

So far, about 11000 acres burned. The fire started on the south side near Carpenter Canyon, sparked by lightning. A big change in winds sent it to the ridge between Griffith and Charleston. The Spring Mountain area is mainly closed to access right now. For us, this is a huge fire.

If you want to have Echo Canyon Trail all to yourself, there's no better time than now.

Sedona hike ideas

I'm going to Sedona for a few days soon with the wife.
What are some of your ideas on the best hikes for the VIEWS (distant views) and for the best hikes for the TERRAIN (local rock features) that are within a half-hour drive of Sedona?
The duration of the hike for these ideas should be no more than 6 hours round trip for two people that are in reasonably good shape.

Thanks - Paul
