Grand Canyon National Park- Arizona
The Grand Canyon probably doesn’t require much of an introduction. The park is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. In 1908 Theodore Roosevelt declared the Grand Canyon a National Monument, and in 1919 it was granted national park status. In addition, the park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
The Grand Canyon has an elevation spanning from around 2,000 feet to over 8,000 feet, and was carved over some 6 million years. Geological activity and erosion by the Colorado River created the Grand Canyon as we know it today.
We will visit some of the many viewpoints on the rim, and you will also get some free time on your own where you can hike a bit down into the canyon as well. Hiking into the canyon you will get a totally difference perspective and get a better feel of the magnitude of the canyon. But it is only recommended if you are in a decent shape since the walk back up is fairly steep and strenuous.
Grand Canyon Deer Farm - Arizona
This farm is 10 acres of absolute animal wonderland. You will have a rare opportunity to get close hundreds of deer’s and get to hand feed them and pet them. You can walk a path and also view llamas, coatimundi, bison, peacocks and other animals. The deer farm also has a great gift shop.
Sedona - Arizona
We will visit the desert town of Sedona in Arizona. The town is surrounded by majestic red rock sandstone scenery and evergreen vegetation. The red rocks get its color from Iron Oxide formed on the individual grains of the rocks to create the beautiful rust color.
The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of mountain biking and hiking trails, we will explore a few of the hiking trails.
Look around the photo above with your mouse ↑.
This desert town became Hollywood’s hottest set during the 1940s and 50s when actors such as John Wayne made cowboy films a smash hit. The town of Sedonahas been the set of endless Western films, most notably Billy the Kid and Broken Arrow.
Sedona’s landscape is believed to contain energy-healing vortexes, which attract those people looking to make a life-changing pilgrimage, but even if you aren’t looking for some sort of spiritual awakening, the beauty of this desert destination is sure to bring you joy and uplift your mood.
Monument Valley NavajoTribal Park– Arizona/Utah
Monument Valley is a red-sand desert region on the Arizona-Utah border located on the Navajo Nation, one of the largest American Indian tribes. It is known for the towering sandstone buttes of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. The park is frequently a filming location for Western movies. The park is accessed by a looping 17-mile dirt road called Valley Drive.
You will experience one of the most majestic and most photographed places. This great valley boasts sandstone masterpieces that tower at heights of 400 to 1,000 feet. The landscape is overwhelming is both beauty and size. The fragile pinnacles of rock are surrounded by miles of mesas and buttes, shrubs and trees, and windblown sand, all comprising the magnificent colors of the valley. All of this harmoniously combines to make Monument Valley a truly wondrous experience.
By the entrance we will also visit a visitor center complex, which includes a gift shop and a café.
From the visitor center, you see the world-famous panorama of the Mitten Buttes and Merrick Butte. Inside the park we will most likely also encounter Navajo vendors selling arts, crafts and Navajo souvenirs at roadside stands.
Horseshoe Bend- Arizona
Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped bend on the Colorado River located near the town of Page within the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. It is also referred to as being part of the "Grand Canyon East Rim”. This now-iconic symbol of the American Southwest is a true geologic masterpiece made by the Colorado River.
Look around the photo above with your mouse ↑.
To view the Horseshoe Bend we will have to hike a 1.5 mile roundtrip trail which is relative flat. The overlook is at 4,200 feet (1,300 m) above sea level, and the Colorado Riveris at 3,200 feet (1,000 m) above sea level, making it a 1,000-foot (300 m) drop. At the viewpoint, you can see the waters of the Colorado Riverin all their sparkling, blue-green glory as they drift along toward the Grand Canyon.
Please read here for more info about how the bend was geologically formed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horseshoe_Bend_(Arizona)
Antelope Canyon- Arizona
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest, located on Navajo land and acknowledged by many people as the most beautiful canyon in the US. Immerse yourself within the true beauty of a kaleidoscope of natural colors through the canyon. The canyon is protected by the Navajo Parks and Recreation and we will visit the canyon with one of the few authorized tour companies that can take visitors to the canyon. The canyon is a popular location for photographers and sightseers, and a source of tourism business for the Navajo Nation. It has been accessible by tour only since 1997.
Antelope Canyon’s 60-foot cliffs were formed by the erosion of Navajo Sandstone due to flash flooding, especially during monsoon season. Water runs into the extensive basin above the slot canyon sections, picking up speed and sand as it rushes into the narrow passageways. Over time the passageways eroded away and formed the characteristic "flowing" shapes. Antelope Canyon is a true natural wonder that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Navajo National Monument - Arizona
Navajo National Monument is a National Monument located within the northwest portion of the Navajo Nation territory, it was established to preserve three well-preserved cliff dwellings of the Ancestral Puebloan people. It features a visitor center with a museum and a few self-guided hiking trails. Navajo National Monumentis a little known gem within the National Park System. Its small crowds and spectacular scenery provide the perfect setting to learn about past and present native cultures.
Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park- Utah
Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is a state park in southwestern Utah. The park features uniquely pink-hued sand dunes located beside red sandstone cliffs.
The dunes are formed from the erosion of pink-colored Navajo Sandstone surrounding the park. High winds passing through the notch between the Moquith and Moccasin Mountains pick up loose sand particles and then drop them onto the dunes. These mountains and hills of sand can move as much as 50 feet per year. The dunes are estimated to be between 10,000 and 15,000 years old.
It's the only major sand dune field on the Colorado Plateau and the only place in the world where you can find the Coral Pink tiger beetle. Elevation is 6,000 feet. We will venture onto a shifting sea of red sand and you can feel free to take your shoes off and feel the sand between your toes.
We will stay at 3 different hotels on this tour. To make it affordable for everyone; we will choose basic but comfortable 2-3-star hotels. You rooms will always have private bath and free Wifi and most of them will also have a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and Flat screen HDTV.
