This is a beautiful area. A must see...pueblos, red rocks and vistas. Truly stunning. Bring enough water because this can be really warm during Summer months.

On the road to or from Western Az, outside Flagstaff. Interesting Native American ruins. Easy hike to walk around native village, visitor center with explanations. Flagstaff is a cool college town with lots of bars and restaurants. Also some neat shops to browse

You have drive to visit about 5 spots with old ruins. They are pretty impressive and interesting for these who enjoys archeology and history. Require at least half day to see all.

Yes and no. The big cacti don’t grow above certain elevations. You will find the prickly pear cacti though. The bigger plants are found closer to Phoenix.
