Thanks for visiting but do not move here. We are full.
Every living thing in this desert has some way to hurt you. Scorpions are just more blatant about it.
Wow. Yah, I lock my gun up before going onto tribal land, but it is easy to make a mistake. It is like having a bit of California right here in Phoenix.
Just like going to Mexico.
Good pics, best place for a road trip. I should have never moved.
we're going for a week not going on Indian land and plan to stay away from bad critters.
Damn, I miss AZ. Loved the WIDE open spaces and places to bum around in aimlessly. Thank you very much for the pics and tips. I lived in Phx for about 30 years until I retired and the wife wanted to move to Kentucky. I could kick myself!
Sedona: You will need to pick up a permit that is sold and multiple locations. Find a permit place before you enter town. This is a good day hike. Devils Bridge. It is a popular hike, so I like to park at the Mescal Parking/trail head in order to avoid crowds. It's a little longer but it's more scenic and you are not walking down a dirt road like the main trail. It's a easy hike until the end. At the end, near the bridge, you have to climb a few steep areas. Even people that don't hike can do it, just take your time if it's warm and sunny. If you have kids it is a must but it will freak you out when they walk on the bridge.
I'd drive through Sedona. It's beautiful and nice to see but if I had a few hours to spend in that part of the state, it would be in Jerome.
I was up there two months ago. They had just reopened. It was absolutely slammed with tourists.
If you are down Tombstone way, Bisbee has the same art colony vibe. It is probably double the size of Jerome which makes it easier to get food and service.
If you go through Sedona plan an stopping at Slide Rock. This is a natural water park.
But the drive up or down (or both) on 89A is beautiful.
It is. Just pray there isn't an accident on I-17. I spent 4 hours getting from Flagstaff to Sedona once when this happened.
I would rather take the back way through Happy Jack and Lake Mary Rd.
to protect the mules, social distancing has caused a few changes...
NEVER EVER take 17 South, back to Phoenix, on a Sunday evening.
All the weekend warriors are coming back from trashing the desert.
Or head North I-17 from Phoenix on a Friday afternoon. That stretch of road near New River gets closed by accidents and there is no easy way to bypass.
You know it. I've learned that if you want to get out of town, best to hit the road by Thursday afternoon or evening. Come back on Monday.
Beware of Sonoran Desert Tortoise Artists.
Wow, what very useful information. Geez the whole northeast section would be illegal to carry, wtf? Looks like Native Americans have copied some white man stuff but instead of speed traps you get guntraps. After confiscation of firearms are they then burned at the stake. WAFJ.
Black Widows and Fire Ants.
DC could end up being a very empty town.
