We’re taking a road trip in Northern Arizona!  Starting in Flagstaff, heading north to the Grand Canyon, then east through the Navajo nation. On the way back to Flagstaff, we have the opportunity to visit the pueblos at Wupatki National Monument, and a big crater at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument.  Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly lie further to the east, and can be incorporated into the trip as well.
