"Traveling to Flagstaff - what to see?"


Akron, US
          

Will be in Flagstaff for a week beginning Dec. 14th. I am completely unfamiliar with the area, except to know I'm going to use it as a base of operations to go see the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and probably down to Sedona. Beyond that, I'm looking for accessible opportunities for my new D800. I'm able to do a bit of hiking, so short excursions to sights (2-3 mile round trip) are possible.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Many people say "don't skip the north rim" it seems they think it's better.

Absolutely, agree 100%, except I anticipate access to it will be closed off. My understanding is that Highway 67 usually closes in Mid-October.

Jerome, AZ is an interesting place to visit. It is near Sedona. A kind of funky, sort of creepy, part ghost town part art center with a lot of history going back to the days of mining. If you are willing to drive east for a few hours I highly recommend Petrified Forest National Park and Canyon de Chelly National Monument as well.

Thanks, Ernesto! This is exactly the kind of info which I find most useful. I'm probably less familiar with the southwest than any other part of the country.

You've got quite a few options in the area. Remember the sun sets at about 5:20PM.

Sunset Crater, a volcanic cinder cone and on the same loop you have some fine ruins as well.

Walnut Canyon, ruins

Meteor Crator

Ride the chair lift up at the Snow Bowl ski area. It takes you from 9000' to about 11,000' elevation.

Route 66 runs through Flagstaff across norther Arizona.

Grand Canyon and take the desert drive loop and visit the Camron trading post.

Have a great time!

Thanks, Dean. I was hoping to hear from you, as I consider you one of the "go to" guys when it comes to knowledge of the US southwest. I'll definitely be checking on those possibilities. We'll see how much The Boss wants to be dragged around . It's dangerous, but maybe a bit of bribery in the form of shopping in Sedona might facilitate things. We'll see. Thanks again for responding.

In 1990 I went to see Comdex in Las Vegas. After the exhibition, I rented a car and drove via Grand Canyon to Phoenix, sleeping the night between in Flagstaff. These are some of the photos I took after Grand Canyon, so some of them were likely shot near Flagstaff.

Regards, Antero

Hi Russ.

If you are willing to travel about twice as far as the Grand Canyon, there are the Slot Canyons close to Page, AZ. I spent a week there in September and there was plenty to see and shoot.
