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.

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, 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.
