The Grand Canyon, Sedona and Sights along the Way! • Bring your family or organize a group of friends to drive the scenic loop and rim country of Arizona. It is an ever changing scenic journey where temperatures average in June between highs in the 70s to high 80s F and a lows 50’s to 60’s F depending on location and altitude. The Grand Canyon is only a 4 hour drive but you will want to stop along the way to see the many sights: the red rocks, mystic vortexes and art galleries of Sedona; drive from there to Flagstaff through Oak Creek canyon or take a splash down slide rock (natural water slide) on the way; while in the Flagstaff area see Meteor Crater and the Sunset Crater volcano or explore the massive Indian cliff dwellings of Walnut Canyon; re-capture the 50’s on Old Route 66 in Seligman; drive back the backroads to the very “alive” Ghost Town of Jerome; or on the way up or back on I17 stop off at the cliff dwelling of Montezuma’s Castle or the fantastic architectural vision of Paolo Soleri at Arcosanti.  For those with more time, east of the Grand Canyon is the Painted Desert, the Petrified Forest, Monument Valley, the ribbon canyons of Lake Powell in Page Az or the ancient Indian dwellings of Canyon de Chelly.
