Planning for Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon

In just a few weeks, we will be heading to Arizona and I will see the Grand Canyon for the first time. We went through Arizona on our cross-country road trip, so this doesn’t get me any states for the 50 States Project. But I’m pretty excited to see the G.C. I think it and Yellowstone were at the top of my must-see national parks in the U.S.

Mike has been to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon before, but this time he will be hiking into the Canyon on a three-day tour with one of our friends. I will be staying at Yavapai Lodge on the South Rim while that part is going on, and we will be in Flagstaff before and after the tour. I’ve got a few things on my list to do while we are there. As usual, I’m not sure we will get to all of it.

Places to Go

Lowell Observatory
Meteor Crater
