We are headed to Sedona Dec 28 - Jan 1. I'm not sure what you pack/wear for our day hiking trips. I've read layers, but in particular I'm wondering about pants. Can we wear what we hike in right to a dinner location or is that too casual? Any recommendations?
I've heard there are some motels near the airport that allow unlimited free parking as long as we spend one night there on either side of our extended trip.
Is it safe to hike in the Sedona area by ones self?
Is it safe during the day to walk from hotels and shopping/dinning/gallery areas by ones self?
Is it safe in Sedona area to take a taxi during the day or early evening when traveling by ones self?
Any other tips great tips are greatly appreciated.
We will be traveling to the south rim around the 25th of December. We will be coming from Los Angeles and heading towards Santa Fe in a rental car. We are concerned about driving a rental car through snowy mountain roads. Are you aware if snow chains would be required?
I'm planning for a trip to some national parks of the SW USA and was wondering if it is easy to make the transport connections between them by public transport.
The plan is to stay about 2-3 weeks there, walk around in the wild, camp, enjoy nature, take nice photos ( but no extreme sports).
Also we would stay a few days more, at a couple of cities in the area - maybe basing at Phoenix and Las Vegas is fine and also practical for flights in/out.
Which partks to vist, would also depend to an extend, on feasibility of moving between them.
Some parks we'd love to visit, are in the area roughly from Grand Canyon AZ to Arches UT and some radius around these.
Yellostone is one more excellent idea too, but seems more far away.
probably we 'll be 2 persons, so renting a car could be ok at some parts, but maybe not for the entire time, for reasons of keeping the costs lower...
so, if you have some tips - recomendations, for making an interesting, practical and low budget itinerary, please do send your suggestions!!
many thanks to all, happy travels!
we want to go see "the wave" in the paria canyons and we're keeping our fingers crossed that we win the online lottery permit.... granting that we get got lucky and got a permit, can you suggest an itinerary for a 3-day trip?
here are the places we want to see:
the wave (if we get the permit)
antelope canyon (a must..we'll be going to both lower & upper)
are those listed above logistically feasible for a 3 whole day trip?
thanks in advance!
