Adventures in Phoenix

Adventures in Phoenix
Destination(s): Phoenix

Phoenix is many things to many people: a dramatic desert ripe for exploration, a hot spot for culture, a golfer's paradise or an award-winning resort destination. From the moment visitors approach the Sonoran Desert by air, they are witness to the diversity of the landscape. Hikers, bikers and climbers in Greater Phoenix have come to the same conclusion as coyotes, roadrunners and jackrabbits: The Sonoran Desert is a great place to play. Three major mountains offer opportunities for many outdoor pursuits. Hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding on the area's numerous mountain trails provide views of the variety of flora and fauna at varying elevations. read more about Adventures in Phoenix...

Short Backpack in the Canyon, South Rim

Short Backpack in the Canyon, South Rim
Destination(s): Grand Canyon National Park

Spend four nights in the depths of the Grand Canyon. Anytime you want to camp inside the canyon, you have to plan ahead to obtain permits. You may visit the backcountry office, located in Grand Canyon village in the Park, or fax a request for permit form found on the National Park Website. Either way, the permits go quickly in the spring and fall, so plan early! It can also be difficult to reserve lodging in the Park for the night before and/or after your trip unless you act ahead of time. El Tovar is the finest of the lodges in the park. Bright Angel Lodge has historical charm and the Maswik Lodge is the most down-to-earth. Stay in Yavapai as a last resort. Since the point of your trip is to be outside, you may also want to opt for one of the campgrounds located on the rim. It's best to stay in the park the night before you head down into the canyon so that you can be sure to get an early start. In hot weather, plan to start walking before or at dawn, and plan on a siesta during the heat of the day. You can find shade under one of the cottonwoods planted in the more populated areas or under your tent shell. This trip is challenging and only for the experienced hiker. If you are traveling from sea-level, give yourself a few days to acclimate to the elevation before your start this rigorous hike. There are many easier backpacking trips in the surrounding area, but there is something magical and addictive about this canyon. You just have to see for yourself. read more about Short Backpack in the Canyon, South Rim... Read More
