Hi there! We are an early 40's couple who loves scenery, wildlife and moderate hikes. We are thinking of visiting the last week in August 2014. Hubby is a huge western, particularly Wyatt Earp fan so this impacts my schedule a bit. I realize we are looking at increased fees for a one way car rental, but it was not prohibitive. Please take a look and give your feedback/suggestions.
Day 2 - Tour Tombstone - overnight Tombstone
Day 3 - Drive to Tucson - Tour Pima Air Museum - drive to Flagstaff - overnight Flagstaff
Day 5 - Helicopter Tour in AM - hikes in afternoon - overnight Bright Angel
Day 6 - Abyss Overlook Mule Ride in AM - hikes in afternoon - overnight Bright Angel
Day 7 - Visit Bearizona Wildlife Park & Montezuma Castle - overnight Sedona
Day 8 - sunrise hot air balloon ride (bucket list for me) then possibly a Pink Jeep tour - overnight Sedona
Day 9 - fly back to Atlanta from Phoenix around noon
This is just a rough draft, and I anticipate many stops while driving for scenery. I appreciate your feedback!
