Definitely see the Canyon. On the way, you'll find Sedona, which has become a bit touristy but is still an amazing place. Driving from Scottsdale, you'd pass through Camp Verde, which is home to Out Of Africa... lots of lions and tigers and other wildlife. You don't say what date in October, but if you look up the sunset time and check, you might be able to stay in Williams and drive to the Canyon or take the train to the Canyon... that's an experience in itself. Good luck with the trip.
