Relive our trip with me

“The trip across Arizona is just one oasis after another. I like Arizona.” -Will Rogers

With two cameras (and a flash-happy husband) and seven days in Arizona, we captured over 2200 photos. 14 gigabytes worth. And we even had 3 gigabytes to spare.

Surely you don’t want to see them all, so I’ve posted the best on Flickr.
Our itinerary looked something like this:

  • Saturday: fly to Phoenix, pick up rental car, lunch with the Rodriguez’s, exchange rental car, drive to Tucson, see where Rob grew up, dinner at Pinnacle Peak, stay at Starr Pass Golf Suites
  • Sunday: Mission San Xavier del Bac, Old Tucson Studios, lunch with Rob’s friend Sam, Gate’s Pass scenic drive, walk through El Presidio, dinner at “not-so-authentic” On The Border
  • Monday: hike Sabino Canyon, drive to Sedona, dust storm, rain storm, arrive at Montezuma Castle after it closed, dinner at Red Planet Diner, stay at Sky Ranch Lodge
  • Tuesday: climb Bell Rock, lunch at “more authentic” Angel’s Mexican Restaurant, climb Cathedral Rock, back to Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Wall, our sunset adventure at Airport Loop Trail, dinner at Olde Sedona Bar and Grille
  • Wednesday: drive through Oak Creek Canyon, Slide Rock State Park, drive to Grand Canyon, lunch at Cruisers Café 66, Rim Trail, dinner at Yavapai Canyon Café, stay at Bright Angel Lodge Cabins
  • Thursday: hike to Plateau Point, via Bright Angel Trail, dinner at The Arizona Room
  • Friday: exit park through East Entrance, late lunch at Cameron Trading Post, stop at Home Depot in Flagstaff, drive to Phoenix, dinner with Adam at Gordon Biersch, and stay at Hyatt Regency Phoenix
  • Saturday: quick breakfast at McDonalds, drop off rental car, fly home to Atlanta
I relied heavily on member reviews from TripAdvisor to plan this vacation, from itinerary schedules to hotels, tourist attractions to restaurants. If you want to know more about these locations, check out my own TripAdvisor reviews of the things we did and the places we went. (There should be 25 of them, although some are currently awaiting approval!)
