You’ll skirt the Route 66 town of Flagstaff, a high-elevation mountain town at the base of Arizona’s highest point – the San Francisco peaks. From there you’ll continue north to the Navajo Reservation, including a stop at a historic trading post (try the frybread – we’re not kidding). There is a museum that is a must visit at this stop.
From there we’ll beeline to Page, Arizona. You’ll join a Navajo guide as they take you through the amazing natural formations that make Lower Antelope Canyon famous. Photo opportunities are plentiful, and these will be pictures your family will actually like. Then we’ll head to a local restaurant for a group lunch.
