Day 1 > Pick up your motorhome from the Cruise America depot near Phoenix and drive for just over 100 miles to the city of Tucson.

Day 2 > Spend the morning in the Tucson area by visiting the nearby Saguaro National Park to see the mighty Saguaro Cactus, the iconic symbol of the American southwest. Some are over 50ft tall, weigh 8 tonnes, and can live to 200yrs old. Continue to the famous town of Tombstone nThe Town Too Tough to Die" with its wooden sidewalks and saloon doors. 0 50 miles to Benson * Stop at the iconic San Xavier del Bae, the best-preserved mission church in the US. Visit the site of the OK Corral where the Earps and the Clantons battled it out and the fabled Boothill Graveyard where the losers now rest.
Day 3 > Head east along Interstate 10 through the hot and dry Arizona Desert. Before heading into the central forested regions of the state, stop at Fort Bowie.

Army in the late 1800s. 0160 miles to Globe *Visit the Besh-Ba Gowah Museum a few miles outside Globe with one of the largest collections in the world of Salado Indian artifacts.
Day 4 > Travel north and stop at the Petrified Forest National park to see the world's largest collection of fossilized wood, some dating back over 225 million years. Interstate 40 splits the park in two, but if you have the time do take in the northern part too and the Painted Desert which offers astonishing views with its different
colored sands. 0135 miles to Holbrook * Drive a beautiful section of Rte.66 through the center of Holbrook along Navajo Boulevard.
Day 5 > A spectacular day awaits as first up is the magnificent Canyon de Chelly National Monument (pronounced 'd-shay') this is easily on par with any national park you will see on this trip. Two sandstone walls emerge to what become thousand-foot cliffs and the long-abandoned cliff dwellings left by the Ancestral Puebloans. The day keeps getting better as the next stop is the iconic Monument Valley with its instantly recognizable sandstone buttes and pinnacles that come into view as they soar above the desert landscape. 0 197 miles to Monument Valley * Hike the White House Trail in Canyon De Chelly, one of the best hikes in the Southwest. Take a guided tour of Monument Valley with one of the Navajo-run operators.
Day 6 /7 > After heading back through Kayenta, continue onto Lake Powell where we suggest you spend the next 2 nights enjoying a fabulous array of sites for you to visit, including Antelope Canyon, Arizona's most famous and beautiful slot canyon, Horseshoe bend where the mighty Colorado River performs a 180-degree about-turn inside Marble Canyon and the Rainbow Bridge National Monument, the largest natural bridge in the Horseshoe Bend world. 0130 miles to Wahweap * Enjoy the astounding beauty of the Lake Powell area with all the adventures it can offer.
Day 8 > Head south until you reach the small town of Cameron before turning west to one of the wonders of the natural world, the Grand Canyon.

Stop at the Mather campground which is within walking distance from the rim. 0139 miles to The Grand Canyon* Hike the superb Bright Angel Trail into the Canyon but do stay for at least 2 nights as it is a full day hike.

confirmed. Enjoy the natural water chute at Slide Rock State Park.

Before arriving at one of our favorite campgrounds at Lost Dutchman State Park in the stunning Superstition mountains. 0156 miles to Lost Dutchman State Park * Learn about the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine, full of gold and yet to be found!
