Arizona Red Rocks: Prescott, Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Sedona
Blessed with an ideal climate and supreme natural beauty, Arizona is a wonderful family vacation spot, with abundant sun, easy hikes, cool lakes and a rich history.
After arriving in Phoenix, an easy 2 hour shuttle delivers you to Prescott, to our comfortable downtown hotel. Prescott, once the capital of Arizona, is a pleasant and walkable small town with a rich history, surrounded by ponderosa pine forests and rugged granite peaks. We'll spend 1 night here before traveling to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, where we can walk the stunning rim trail, and spend the evening watching the sunset along the Canyon's edge. After 1 night at the Canyon, we'll continue to Flagstaff, where beautiful forests of aspen adorn of Humphrey's peak, Arizona's highest mountain at 12,633'. Then we'll travel through Oak Creek Canyon to beautiful Sedona, America's best kept secret, where striking red canyon walls and lush, riparian areas create an unforgettable landscape. We will return to Prescott for our final night. We'll have guided hikes each day, as well as plenty of opportunity for free time to explore the towns, museums and archaeological sites along the way.Our days will start with a full breakfast at our hotel - your choice of eggs, pancakes, cereal, fruit, coffee, juice - which gives us the energy needed for the day ahead. Then we'll be out on the trail, exploring the wonderful landscapes Arizona has to offer. Due to the high summer temps in Arizona, we will keep most of our hikes in the moderate range. Each morning, you'll be handed a lunch to carry, and at a mid-point along the way we'll choose a beautiful spot to stop and enjoy our picnic.
We should finish our hike around 4 pm, giving you time to wash up, relax at the hotel, or perhaps do a bit of sightseeing on your own. Later, we'll enjoy delicious dinners together at our hotel or another local restaurant.
