The Route

Since we’re staying three nights in Sedona, I’m taking literary license using the term “Rally” when what we’re actually doing is Touring

Sun Nov 10 Fun Starts! 
While the rest of the International Meet says “Good Bye” over breakfast, we will gather at Scottsdale Ferrari for our greeting, packet hand out, driver’s meeting and trip roll out.   Depart the Saguaro cactus filled Sonoran Desert as we rise into the High Chaparral entrance to the Arizona mining country.  These twisty roads will have you enjoying 3rd gear all the way into the mountains and on to the Cowboy State’s first Capitol, Prescott.  Pass through Upper Prescott Valley towards the Mogollon Rim and enter the Oak Creek Canyon sporting their trademark stunning Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona.

Unpack once for the whole trip and join us at 5pm for our daily group wine social hour then dinner on your own (recommend L’ AuBerge, Sedona’s best French restaurant is next door https://www.lauberge.com/ ). 

Mon Nov 11THE GRAND CANYON  100th Anniversary – This is a scenic day twisting through river carved Oak Creek Canyon as we rise up to the vast expanse of the Colorado Plateau. We depart from the direct route to enjoy high desert plains  on roads which end at one of the most famous and picturesque scenes on the Colorado River; The South Rim of the Grand Canyon and 2019 marks the Centennial.  We stay for lunch

Depending on how the group enjoys the South Rim, we have an option to add on Horsheshoe Bend and Antelope Valley with its famous slot canyon with its exposed gorgeous layers of red rock that spiral above you.  We return via the South Rim of The Grand Canyon in the park, the namesake of our State.

 


 

Tues Nov 12 
This is our day to drive historic Route 66, an hour and 20mins along the classic path to our photo stop in Winslow, AZ .  From lunch we make a circle route to cross the famous Mogollon Rim for  a visit to the Indian ruins of Montezuma’s Castle.  These ancient cliff dwellings are an easy 100m walk and the extensive fortress architecture is impressive.   We return to Sedona along the Red Rocks Parkway with sweeping red rock scenery.
