Kartchner Caverns is good.
the Chiricahua Monument area is interesting.
Tubac mission is interesting.

You must see Lost Dutchman State Park, and drive east thru Tortilla Flat. Stop at the Tonto NM. Very nice area. If you have the stamina, hike the Siphon Draw Trail at the SP.


Here is the link to a recent thread we posted about Lost Dutchman.

If you get to Northern AZ, check out Page. Antelope Canyon & Horseshoe Bend are attractions well worth visiting, as is Monument Valley. You can camp at Lee's Ferry on the Colorado River south of Page & have your kayak towed to the base of Glen Canyon Dam & spend a day floating back down the river. A fairly flat section with few rapids...

Some photos starting at 2011 Trip, Day 27.

Definitely spend a day at Canyon De Chelly National Monument in the Navaho Reservation in NE AZ. It is an unbelieveable collection of Anasazi ruins in an unbelieveably beautiful box canyon. You can get a quick overview on wikipedia.

The Sonoran Desert Museum and the Old Tucson movie location in Tucson is a fun and interesting place to spend a day. Once you've seen the movie location, you will know exactly where so many old westerns were filmed when you see them again.

Sign me up as a guy who thinks a 21 foot (Komfort 21T) is a good size.
Tows nicely under any conditions.
Roomy enough that we are not cramped when the weather turns foul.
Walk around bed, big enough shower and closets.

Work the state in 1/4 that is the way we did it with our children years ago. You see much more and don't over look little things which become long remembered.

Go see the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum west of Tucson. You will never see that many native plants and animals in a lifetime of visiting. It is a cross between a zoo and a botanical garden. It will take several hours to walk through and there is a campground, Gilbert Ray, about 15 minutes down the road. Check it out online to see hours and entrance fees. We are members and enjoy it year round.


Still having fun!
