Visitors Enjoy Spring Wildflowers of the Sonoran Desert

Spring in Arizona is the season residents and visitors alike wait for in eager anticipation. The desert terrain bursts into a canvas of unimaginable beauty as delicate desert wildflowers blanket the landscape. It doesn't take much of an excuse and is well worth a day to escape to the southern sections of the state to partake in this visual feast and the Arizona State Parks offer some of the most beautiful locations to view the lavish colors and textures of spring.

Rainbow On The Way To The Grand Canyon from Sedona

Route 64 to the Grand Canyon South Rim is an easy, scenic, and fun drive from Sedona. As a bonus, along the 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive, visitors can stop and enjoy some time in beautiful, fun downtown Williams, an historic town located along the old Route 66 made famous by fast cars and movie stars! This rainbow appeared along Route 64 the last day of September.

Meteor Crater, day trip from Sedona, Arizona.

Get The Hole Story At Meteor Crater in Northern Arizona

The open stretch of high desert between Flagstaff and Winslow may seem like the most uneventful place on earth, but 50,000 years ago, it was the site of an event of cosmic proportions. That's when a meteorite weighing around 300,000 tons ripped through Earth's atmosphere in a fiery streak and slammed into the Coconino plateau at about 15 kilometers per second, where it made, shall we say, a lasting impression.

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.
