16th – 19th April 2010
Drove to Flagstaff from Vegas, stopped at the Hoover Dam which was very impressive. As we got closer to Flagstaff, which was very high up, couldn’t help noticing the piles of snow at the side of the road! Luckily it was warm and sunny. Stayed at the Aspen Hotel, myself and Phil hired mountain bikes and went riding through Buffalo Park to the top of a mountain, this took 1.5 hours to reach the top, trails were extremely good, dry and technical at times.
Drove to the Grand Canyon and spent the most of the day there, simply breathtaking, a very hot day meant the views were staggering!!
Checked out on the 19th and set-off for Phoenix, drove the scenic route through Sedona which was also very beautiful.
