Signup will begin at the September 6 Social at Eastmoreland Golf Club House. The trip cost covers the pretrip dinner, a car rental for every four people, eleven days of lodging, many breakfasts, one possible picnic dinner at Cathedral Rock and one dinner out. On day 1, we fly to Las Vegas then drive 250 miles to Prescott, Arizona. We hope to arrive in time to enjoy one of Prescott's historical landmarks, Whiskey Row. In the morning of day 2, we are headed to the historical gold mining town Jerome and Tuzigoot National Monument on our way to Sedona. We stay in Sedona for three nights giving you time to enjoy the beauty of this area with its red rocks. red canyons, art galleries, striking scenery, desert life and spectacular hikes. We feature a few moderate trails such as Boynton Canyon, West Fork of Oak Creek, and Marg's Draw which is in back of our Arabella Hotel. There are many longer and more difficult trails if you are up to it. On day 5, we head north stopping at Walnut Creek National Monument before reaching the Grand Canyon south Rim. We stay two nights in Tusayan which is couple miles away. There is a free shuttle to Grand Canyon village and 3 more shuttle connections there so you can visit any place you want, stay as long as you want, or hike between shuttle stops. You can be completely on your own while we are at the south rim of the Grand Canyon. On day 7, we drive to the north rim of the Grand Canyon and stay in cabins either on the rim or close to it. It is a magical place with many fewer people and scenery everyone loves. On day 9, we drive north to Escalante National Monument in Utah, a remote area where we have lodging for three nights. We will also be in Calf Creek Recreation Area, Death Hollow Wilderness, where you can hike/drive and explore Hole in the Rock Road, Cottonwood Canyon Road, slot canyons, and the Escalante River. We have a cowboy Dutch oven dinner on the schedule at the Wild West Retreat. I have arranged one optional fee activity so far-- a four-hour educational hike up the Escalante River with a retired geologist to look at Indian petroglyphs and pictographs.
