Such a variety of plants and trees. The Ponderosa Pines are amazing and the golden Alpines in October look so beautiful splashing color all over the forest. The large boulders and pockets of cave like crevices are intriguing. Red rock that pops up out of nowhere completely captures your attention to continue looking for more eye popping views. What a great time exploring.

We took the "long way" to flagstaff and the Gramd Canyon National Park and couldn't have been happier that we took the time! It is a beautiful drive with several places to stop for photo opportunities. At one location, there was even an Indian crafts fair. There were no services because of the government shut down but it didn't matter because Sedona was nearby.

Lots of fall foliage and rock formations! Beautiful drive! We plan to return again as soon as we can! Many free attractions in the area - nature at its best!

A very nice campground in the Coconino National Forest in Oak Creek Canyon between Sedona and Flagstaff. We stayed four nights and it was perfect for us (three year-old and two adults). We would stay again.

There are 82 sites, of which 11 are reservable. Very quiet as radios are not allowed.
Coin-operated showers (Minimum $4.00 for 8 minutes - very hot water).
Tables, fire pits and cooking grills, wood for purchase, paved roads and spurs, vault-type toilets (stinky - bring air spray so you don't choke and antibacterial wipes), and drinking water are provided.
Store on site for necessities and basic groceries you may need.

This is a beautiful and mostly-level trail off route 180 about 20-25 miles northwest of Flagstaff. There is a 1/4 mile loop covered in asphalt that is wheel-chair accessible and an additional loop (not paved) making the entire trail 1.5 miles. It is a beautiful setting with lots of Ponderosa Pines and Quaking Aspens beside the trail. Markers give information on local flora and fauna. Although one is walking through forest, on one side is a grassland area. In some areas, one can view nearby mountains. We strolled the 1.5 mile trail on a lovely afternoon (high 60 degrees, not a cloud in the sky.)

One is more likely to see animals in the early morning, so we saw only a few Albert's Squirrels and a caterpillar that afternoon. Other animals you might see include deer, antelope, elk, badgers, coyotes, and many types of birds.

The trail is an easy stroll with no steep areas or rough terrain. One could walk it in about 30 minutes, but if you stop often to listen for birds and other animals or take photos that could stretch to 2 hours. A restroom is located beside the parking lot.
