Sedona and wider in Arizona

Overview

Quote:
We were stunned by the Red Rock area at Sedona, even though we had passed through a few years before and thought it looked "interesting". So we returned to see more. Top memories from our trip: a hike in Boynton Canyon, the Red Rock jeep tour to visit a pueblo, the local microbrewery (for food as well as the excellent beer), and the Tlaquepaque arts centre (something we always avoid but THIS centre is outstanding). Monument Valley - seen in so many Westerns and other movies, was breathtaking. We stayed at Gouldings Lodge - we found it expensive compared to the local alternatives! TIP!!You can still book on Gouldings Tours...Read More

Best Things Nearby:Tlaquepaque arts centre, with its beautiful courtyards and shops, and the excellent food and beer at the microbrewery (no surprise that the owners came from Bavaria). The resort reception staff will happily arrange for the local tour bus to drop by and show you the area - a two hour tour that is WELL worth the effort as you get to find out so much and visit places you would otherwise probably miss. They can also arrange the 4-wheel drive jeep tours into the wilder areas (including tours to visit pueblos). While I would hesitate to go on ANOTHER tinmeshare tour, the one here is VERY early in the morning, VERY short, and for going you get a free ticket for a jeep tour for two...Read More

Dinosaur footprints

We saw the sign on the highway (about 5 miles west of Tuba City). We NEVER stop for these signs - but DINO PRINTS?

We went in and about 1/2 mile up the track some very friendly Navajo explained it was true, fossilised dinosaur prints.

And then one of the guys showed us the various prints - adult and young, and even fossilised dinosaur droppings.

Stunning and one of the memories of Arizona that will stay with us for years!

Possibly the most spectacular place that we have ever visited.

We were very lucky in having an outstanding local Navajo guide drive us through Mystery Valley in the morning (and make us lunch) then take us into Monument Valley in the afternoon.

Scenery totally out of this world, the chance to see the Navajo farms and dwellings, to meet and chat to them as well made an excellent day - well what word means better than excellent? That is how good it was!
