The last time I saw was in Arizona, I was five. All I remember was being crammed six people per bench inside the belly of a sunny-hued Hummer roaring up the Grand Canyon in what felt like “melting your face off” heat.
My takeaway was that Arizona was “impressively hot”.
Coming back to Arizona, with a better equipped tolerance for heat, has most definitely opened up my eyes and realized that there is more to this state than viewing the Grand Canyon from the Visitor’s Centre and dying of heat.
If you’re trying to figure out what to do for two or three days in Arizona, then grab a rental car, a tent, some comfy shoes and let’s get hiking with us! We captured the Milky Way, saw the sunrise at the Grand Canyon, hiked Devil’s Bridge, marveled at the Chapel of the Holy Cross, and more in our three day road trip in Arizona.
*Note* We did not see the Antelope Canyon but we can promise you that we saw quite a few other beautiful sights that’s worth considering!
