When the temperatures start soaring in the Phoenix area during the summer, residents flee north towards cooler climates like Camp Verde, Flagstaff, and Sedona. In June 2017, we drove the RV to an RV park in Cottonwood. This was the first time we encountered an RV space that was hard to level and back into. For this RV trip, we drove our Jeep to Tuzigoot National Monument in Camp Verde, then headed to Sedona. There is so much to do in the area, you could spend at least a week or two visiting points of interest.
Tuzigoot National Monument
Tuzigoot is an ancient pueblo built by the Sinagua people.
We went to Sedona for lunch, but didn’t take any pictures until we were trying to leave Sedona. Unfortunately, we could not leave Sedona the same way we came in – there was a massive traffic jam on the way into Sedona from 89a, and we ended up having to take 89a all the way to Flagstaff. Here are some of the photos we took at the wayside just north of Sedona on 89a.
