Wally Dickerman in Arizona
Hey Don....Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Some really great scenery and at fairly high elevation so temps will be comfortable.
I live in Green Valley, 30 miles south of Tucson. We're about 150 miles from Phoenix and much farther from Sedona. My wife and I will be leaving on a trip to the NW on the 24th so getting together won't work.
Enjoy your trip. We're in the monsoon season so you'll probably see some thunderstorms which can be spectacular this time of year.
