    • Arizona/Utha in Fall

      Arizona Jan 29, 2017 at 9:49 AM

      Hi :)

      I need some advice for travel. I want to go to Las Vegas this fall and then drive by car to Grand Canyon and etc.
      My plan looks like this:

      First Day - Pick up the Car, drive to Hoover Dam and then to Tusayan

      Second Day - Visit Grand Canyon. We are not really "hiking people", so everything that takes more thatn 2hrs round trip is probably to much.But as i seen on then internet, most places are pretty accesible by car or shuttle.

      Third Day - Drive to Page, visit the Slot Canyons arount 11 AM (tours start then). and visit Horseshoe Bend in the afternoon

      Fourth Day - Drive from Page to Bryce Canyon (about 3hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Fifth Day - Visit Bryce Canyon

      Sixt Day - Drive to Springdale for Zion NP (about 2hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Seventh Day - Zion NP (visit The Narrows)
      Eight Day - Zion NP - What should we do too?
      Ninnth Day - Spend morning in Zion then drive back to Vegas, Anything nice to see on the way there?

      What do you think, is it a good plan? Should we spend less/more at a specific place? We have read that roads in this area are usually straight and not crowded, so driving shouln't be a hussle.

      Any help is appreciated

    • Kayaking on the Verde River?

      by MML1 Online Now Jun 2, 2016 at 1:44 PM

      Visiting Sedona the first week in August and considering renting a "ducky" kayak for 1/2 day on the Verde River. Two questions: 1. is the river pretty flat that time of year (i.e. will we have to paddle harder) or is it fairly quick moving? 2. Is it a bazillion degrees on the river in August or cooler than Sedona? Thanks.

    • suggestions for Sedona/Phoemix area for limited walking

      by Mysticvisions Online Now May 10, 2016 at 8:46 PM

      I have never been west of Tennessee so everything in the Western United states will be new to me. Can someone provide some suggestions for places in the Phoenix/Sedona area to visit? We are definitely more into the nature related areas more so than the shopping meccas. Flying pretty much limits how much shopping could be done anyway. The Grand Canyon is a given of course but we like the quaint little towns, old west locations, etc.
      Is it better to take the trains in some locations than driving.
      A tremendous amount of walking and hiking is out but medium distance walking is ok.
      I know this is not much to go on but I am so overwhelmed at the choices.
      Thanks in advance!

      by ScottS64 Online Now Sep 28, 2015 at 6:16 PM

      I spent time in Sedona in the late 80's and had an incredible time. Took many hikes to experience the "Vorteses." A good friend and I are planning at trip in 2016, as part of our "bucket lists." We want to to visit at a time with fewer crowds, have a low-key, no agenda visit. When would you suggest to be a good time of the year. Hoping to be outside most of the time. I know things have changed since I was there. We are using Cottonwood as a base. What other day trips would you suggest? Thanks...Scott

      Hiking in Sedona, AZ

      by taument Online Now Aug 20, 2015 at 11:28 AM

      I will be in Sedona, AZ next week, and would like to know 3 of the best hiking trails. My 20 year old daughter and I will be doing half day hikes and there are too many trails to choose from. We like moderate to difficult trails, but not dangerous trails (edges of cliffs where one false move you die). Please advise on the best scenic trails that would be a great half day hike.

      When I visited Sedona last year, I went to an outdoor market at the Oak Creek Factory Outlets. There was a man who had a table of sterling silver jewelry. His jewelry did not tend to be Native American. He had some very nice dragonfly charms and pendants. I know this is a shot in the dark, but I'm wondering if anyone might be familiar with him. I would like to purchase a piece of his jewelry. He told me he lived in Arizona, but not Sedona. He is a silversmith., but he had retired from another profession.
