My Red-Rock Road Trip Through Northern Arizona

Author: , July 13th, 2013

Red RocksGot a bucket list? One of my bucket-list items was to drive across the desert and see the epic flatness, red rock passes and endless desertscapes of the wild west. Conjuring images of old westerns watched with my dad, I imagined the good guys and the bad guys hiding in the canyons and bluffs for the ambush. While visiting Phoenix, Arizona, I took a 400 mile, 9 hour road trip from Phoenix through Sedona to Flagstaff, on to Meteor Crater, via Route 66 to “Standin-on-the-corner” in Winslow, Arizona and back cross-country to Phoenix … in a Ford Mustang Convertible!

Doesn’t the top-down freedom of wind in your hair, the endless sun of Arizona at 70 miles per hour in a convertible sound like a perfect daytrip? If historical landmarks are your thing, Montezuma’s Castle’s for you. If it’s the grandiosity of the red rock wonders, Sedona’s yours. Prefer upscale shops and boutique getaways? Sedona’s got what your chasing. Camping or kid-friendly desires? Slide Rock or Red Rock State Park is the thing.

Taking Highway 17 north from Phoenix towards Flagstaff first takes you to Montezuma’s Castle (in the Cape Verde area). Over a thousand years ago, the Sinagua people lived here in an ingenious 45-room dwelling high up on the cliff face.

Sedona’s Foodie Scene

Author: , April 20th, 2013

Red RocksHeading to Sedona for a little red-rock-relaxation? Anne Roderique-Jones at Sherman’s Travel has the details on the city’s gourmet scene:

Sedona may not come to mind when you think of great food cities. It’s not Paris, New Orleans, or New York City, but there are the beginnings of a food scene here and enough great dining options to fill your vacation. Here are three of my favorites:

Elote Cafe: Ask anyone where to eat in Sedona and they’ll tell you hightail it to Elote Cafe – Chef Jeff Smedstad’s award-winning Mexican cuisine warrants the sometimes multiple-hour waits. I arrived early on a Monday evening and was kindly told that it would only be two hours. Luckily, there’s a tiny window serving fresh margarita and gratis spicy popcorn to keep guests satiated. Two (or was it three?) ginger margs later, the chef’s innovative Mexican cuisine beckoned. My vote? The Elote appetizer is incredible and Lamb Adobo pairs perfectly with a local beer. You can pick up the Elote Cafe cookbook as a souvenir – beats the pants off a dream catcher any ol’ day.
