We have completed the tasks of buying a new motorhome and a new tow vehicle along with doing a few modifications and upgrades to the vehicles and now we are in the midst of our final preparations before we begin our summer excursion.
Before we depart we thought we would enjoy a few more trips around the area.
Spring Art and Wine Festival
Litchfield Park hosts a yearly Art and Wine Festival in the spring with a beer and wine garden, live music, entertainment, vendor booths of arts and crafts, and culinary demonstrations.
As crowded as Sedona can get, especially in the spring, we still enjoying stopping by and enjoying a hike or too. Luckily we can use our Interagency Pass anywhere where a Red Rock Pass is required for trail access which is not only convenient and easy but cost effective.
We decided to head up to the Grand Canyon and rent a cabin while touring our house guests around. We usually take our RV to the canyon bu this made for a different kind of trip being able to stay in a cabin right along the South Rim.
Wupatki National Monument
Not far from Flagstaff stands the ruins of Wupatki Pueblo with lots of history and a self-guided tour throughout the pueblo. The Interagency Pass works here also!
Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument
Sunset Crater is close to Flagstaff also and has nice hiking trails and lots of lava rocks. We stayed at the campground at Sunset Crater last year and loved it. This year the local mountains (San Francisco Peaks) were covered in snow and it provided quite the contrast to the black lava.
Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area
One of our local hiking areas that we try to get to as often as possible.
Spring Training – Chicago Cubs
It’s not officially spring unless you go to spring training!! Go Chicago Cubs!
