We got back late last night / early this morning from our 1 week in Arizona.
Here are the highlights:
- We left Kelowna last Saturday and flew into Phoenix. The airport was fairly straightforward, although you do have to take a shuttle bus from the airport to the car rental complex which is about 15 minutes away. They had reserved a vehicle that was too small for our group of 8, so we had a bit of a wait getting that sorted out. By the time we left the rental building it was quite late and then it was a late night drive from Phoenix to Sedona. Waking up in Sedona was beautiful. I think it would be hard to get a bad view room in Sedona because you are literally surrounded by red rocks on all sides.
- I had reserved a tour through this company, and they really delivered. I highly recommended them if you are in this area and want to have a great experience and a lot of fun. The Broken Arrow trail really gave took us off the beaten track that you need a jeep to enjoy.
- After we did the jeep tour we had free time. The kids went to the pool with my mom (pool was chilly) and Vic and I poked around this older part of Sedona. Mostly just little shops and a few places to eat. Sedona is fairly quiet but seemed to be nice and relaxing.
- We had mexican food for dinner that evening and then drove around a little bit before heading to bed as we had a longish drive the next morning to the Grand Canyon (via Flagstaff). More on that tomorrow....
