September 4th - 19th, 2011. Arizona is the land of red rock. What we learnt it is also the land of hoodoos. Our journey started with a 2.5 day guided photography tour, followed by 12 days on our own.
Our stay in an in-park hotel on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon provided quick and easy access to the sights of the Canyon, but not the highlight of the trip. Monument Valley was dramatic in its bareness but deep in charm. I wanted to stay two days but one day was available at the hotel. It turned out this was sufficient. Our stay in Zion was possibly the highlight. In part because (at least on my part) it was unexpected. The scenery was diverse and interesting. We included a day- trip to Bryce Canyon which was diminished by rain and cloud.
Our return took us to Sedona where we played a round of golf at Seven Canyon Golf Course, the once prize course now in decay with bankruptcy.
