From Flagstaff to Page, AZ and Horseshoe Bend

From Camp Verde we headed up to Flagstaff on highway 17. It’s quite a hill to climb. We started out at elevation 3323 and got up to 7000 feet and saw our first snow for the season at Flagstaff. We stopped in Flagstaff to pick up some more solar panels from Northern Arizona Wind and Sun. They are great people to work with and are cheaper than Quartzsite and Yuma.

We headed north on highway 89 to Page. This road is rough in spots, especially further north. Lots of “bouncing” and holes.

Once at Page, we stopped at Walmart, with permission. The most RVs, cars/vans we had at one time was 12. They have a huge parking lot. We unhooked the jeep and went back a couple of miles to see Horseshoe Bend. Horseshoe Bend is part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. It was carved out by the Colorado River and has a 1.5 mile trail (round trip) from the parking lot. The trail is sandy, up and down a hill. Once at the rim, be careful – it’s over 1000 feet down.
