Exploring Arizona: Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and the Navajo Lands
September 28 – October 5, 2019
The Southwest by Small Group
It’s the perfect time of the year to explore that world of sublime desert-and-rock hues, we call the Southwest! We’ll fly in and out of Phoenix, Arizona, and make a loop to Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and Navajo lands in the Northeast. Enjoy scenic, small-road driving routes, opportunities for photography, hiking, horseback riding, and to learn about the amazing geology and human overlay in this vast, sparsely-populated region. Meet local experts, who will relate stories of Native Americans, early Hispanic and Anglo settlers, and the cultural ferment inspired by the natural elements.
- Two nights in beautiful Sedona: guided walks and photo ops; horseback riding option
- The historic El Tovar Lodge, perched on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon (2 nights)
- Exploration of Navajo National Monument and Monument Valley (one night in Kayenta, AZ),
- Exploration of cool Scottsdale, including a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliensin West ranch and studio
