Learn about day trips and adventures from Sedona to off-the-beaten-path places and attractions across Northern Arizona.

There are scores of geological wonders, historic sites, and archaeological treasures found all across Northern Arizona. Some of the most visited sites include restored ancient habitations like the cliff dwellings of Montezuma Castle and the multistory Tuzigoot National Monument. Tuzigoot is an ancient Sinagua (Native American) site perched high above the Verde River. Visitors can walk through a network of rooms and experience what it must have been like centuries ago.

Route 66 painted on the historic road as it passes through Arizona.

Ernie Travels to Oatman on Old Route 66

As you may already know, my name is Ernie, and I am a Boston Terrier.  By nature, Boston Terriers are individualistic, curious and energetic. So, it should not be a surprise to anyone that one of my favorite things to do is to explore and sniff around different places in Northern Arizona. Living in Sedona and having Northern Arizona as a playground for a dog is perfect for new adventures, and for meeting new friends. So, what I plan on doing is exploring some of the wonderful and interesting places in the area, and sharing my thoughts and observations.

Oatman Arizona has something for everyone, wild burros included!

Travels With Ernie — Ernie Discovers Oatman Arizona, a Fun Wild West Overnight Trip from Sedona

Among my favorite adventures away from Sedona has been my trip to Oatman, Arizona. It’s a real dog heaven. Lots of interesting scents, and the folks there are good about handouts. I even got to share an ice cream cone with a wild burrow. Actually, I really had no choice since the burro didn't ask first.

Laws Spring, Along the Old Beale Camel Trail

Travels With Ernie — Ernie Travels to Laws Spring, Hidden Adventure and Day Trip from Sedona, Arizona

Ernie Explores Laws Spring Along the Old Beale Camel Trail

One of my favorite dog adventures is a visit to Laws Spring, an off-the-beaten track, must–see trip for any tourist interested in Arizona history and prehistoric civilizations. I like it because it’s a great place for a dog to relax and kick back, take a little swim in a really cool natural spring, and spend some “quiet time.” Because it is little known, the swarms of tourists that flood other well-known parts of Northern Arizona have not discovered this adventure. Another benefit is that visitors have a great opportunity to see elk, deer, wild turkey, antelope and other indigenous animals of the region that make their home in this part of the country.
