The American southwest has always been a Frontier Travel Camp favorite over the course of the more then two and a half decades since we started running trips. With the increase of temperatures in the summer in recent times, we have found that running these trips are pretty much impossible in July. Early spring is the perfect time of year to travel here as the temperatures during the day are quite mild and the nights are exceptionally beautiful.
We’ll start our tour in Arizona. After arriving in Phoenix we will head out directly to Sedona, arguably one of the most beautiful landscapes in all of the west. We will spend a few days enjoying the outdoors. For those who like a like to hike, you can opt-in and hike to one of the many viewpoints overlooking the valley.
Then, we’ll head north to the Grand Canyon. On the way we’ll stop at Meteor Crater National Landmark which is where a meteorite impacted the earth about 50,000 years ago.
Once in the Grand Canyon, we are going to lodge in the best accommodations available along the canyon ridge. Since we won’t be taking any long hikes into the canyon, this will be a wonderfully relaxing day and highly memorable for those who haven’t yet laid their eyes on the canyon. It is definitely a bucket-list lifetime must-see destination. Then we are off to Bryce Canyon National and Zion National Parks. The parks we’ll visit are all in our top five favorites in the country.
Finally, we will end our trip with a bang in Las Vegas, Nevada. No expense will be spared here as we are staying at the world famous Venetian Hotel. We’ll tour the highlights of the city, have a few luxurious meals, and even pop in for one of the many great shows this city has to offer.
