Lets Go Places prt 24 - Arizona, Phoenix to Flagstaff - USA Travel - YouTube
So much has changed in the Sonoran Desert in so little time, as recently as 100 years ago several of the dry washes were true rivers.Arizona boasts an impressive 30 or so native species of fish, unfortunately, most of the natives are disappearing with some of them virtually gone. Of Arizona’s native species, at least two-thirds are listed as Threatened or Endangered by state or United States federal agencies. A myriad of factors has resulted in their precarious position, including exotic competitors (and predators), irrigation diversion, dams, and overuse of available water by our burgeoning human population.
The Metro Population of Phoenix is 4,398,762
For more than 2,000 years, the Hohokam peoples occupied the land that would become Phoenix. The Hohokam created roughly 135 miles (217 km) of irrigation canals, making the desert land arable.
When the Mexican-American War ended in 1848, Mexico sold its northern zone to the United States and residents became U.S. citizens. The Phoenix area became part of the New Mexico Territory.
Phoenix is the sixth most populous city in the United States according to the 2010 United States Census, with a population of 1,445,632, making it the most populous state capital in the United States.
IN 1870 THE POPULATION WAS 240
The early economy of Phoenix was focused primarily on agriculture and natural resources, dependent mainly on the 5Cs which were copper, cattle, climate, cotton and citrus.
With more than 62,000 hotel rooms in over 500 hotels and 40 resorts, greater Phoenix sees over 16 million visitors each year, the majority of whom are leisure (as opposed to business) travelers.

TRAVEL DAYS TO SEDONA ARIZONA - FAY CANYON TRAIL HIKE-EP36
Sue & I usually try to keep our “travel days” in the range of 200 to 250 miles per move. On the Interstate, I set the cruise at 64 mph, because it’s comfortable, safer and the Honda we pull has a 65 mph limit. It puts the 450 hp diesel motor in the sweet spot for the best mileage.
We are tracking mileage, and I wish I had better news. It’s about 6.5 mpg. My kids are never going to get an inheritance at this rate!
When just moving long distances, and NOT actually site seeing, some people pull into a Walmart, Cabela’s or Cracker Barrel for an overnight stay, for free. We have never done this and feel we are just too long at 65 feet to fit in easily.
This is our own insecurities,…many people this long and driving a motorhome do it. I wouldn’t blame the local kids if they tried to do burnouts around us in the parking lot at 2am,…….just to be funny. I know I would have when I was young! I also worry about getting “parked in” by someone,……and global warming.
This quick clip shows Sue wiping off the rig after our days run, with me supervising and recording the event. Then, it's my turn, and I take over,..... and cook us both a great late evening dinner. Thanks to our friend Brian for teaching me some of his barbecuing skills! The recipe I used here is actually one I created for myself over the years.
We chose to only hook up electric so we can take off early tomorrow to grind out another 201 miles. I elected to take one for the team, and NOT shower, so Sue could take a normal one. We only carry 105 gallons,......and wanted to stretch it a few more days so we don’t have to hook up the sewer lines at the next few stops. The campground showers were actually first class here,………. but you really can never beat showering at home.
We are headed to Tucson AZ for a week, Mesa AZ for a week, Sedona AZ for 10 days, then Yuma AZ for December 2018. Still wearing shorts after 17 months on the road!
On our way to Sedona Arizona, we stopped at a rest stop to eat some lunch. SUE made a wonderful beef stew the night before, and needs to get credit for it here! We were here quite a while and we didn’t notice some of the scenery till we were leaving to go into the rig to start microwaving lunch,…………….
Finally in Sedona, Sue and I went on a short 2 mile round trip hike on Saturday, 11-24-2018. It was called the Fay Canyon Trail, and was surrounded by towering sandstone mountains. The movies and pictures pale in comparison to how they look in person.
This is my second video that I edited,.....and added music this time! Still working to get better. Thanks for watching.
*OJiM (Our Journey In Myles) is a channel for fun, sharing and exploring the wonders of Full Time RV Life,…... together with you. Sue & I are not RV or RV Travel experts, and are learning as we go along in our RV Living. We are willing to share our RV Newbie experiences and what works for us as a couple in our Class A Motorhome we have named “Myles. We encourage you to do your own research, and to develop your own special style, whether it be in a Travel Trailer or a 5th Wheel. We will never be an RV Travel expert, but will document the RV Tips & Tricks we learn from our experiences along the way for you. We started our journey in miles by learning from many RV Vloggers that we still subscribe to today. We hope that you will consider subscribing to our channel to see what we did in each of the states we have visited already, to help you better plan what to do when you get there on your adventure!
Most Beautiful Place / Canyonlands National Park, Southeastern Utah
Canyonlands National Park is a U.S. National Park located in southeastern Utah near the town of Moab. It preserves a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas, and buttes by the Colorado River, the Green River, and their respective tributaries. Legislation creating the park was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on September 12, 1964.
The park is divided into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the combined rivers—the Green and Colorado—which carved two large canyons into the Colorado Plateau. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character. Author Edward Abbey, a frequent visitor, described the Canyonlands as the most weird, wonderful, magical place on earth—there is nothing else like it anywhere.
Canyonlands is a popular recreational destination. Since 2007, more than 400,000 people have visited the park each year with a record of 776,218 visitors in 2016, representing a 22 percent increase from the prior year. The geography of the park is well suited to a number of different recreational uses. Hikers, mountain bikers, backpackers, and four-wheelers all enjoy traveling the rugged, remote trails within the Park. The White Rim Road traverses the White Rim Sandstone level of the park between the rivers and the Island in the Sky. Since 2015, day-use permits must be obtained before travelling on the White Rim Road due to the increasing popularity of driving and bicycling along it. The park service's intent is to provide a better wilderness experience for all visitors while minimizing impacts on the natural surroundings.
The Island in the Sky mesa from the Needles district
As of 2016, the Island in the Sky district, with its proximity to the Moab, Utah area, attracts 76.7 percent of total park visitors. The Needles district is the second most visited, drawing 20.7 percent of visitors. The remote Maze district accounts for only about 1.5 percent of visitors, while river rafters and other river users account for the remaining 1.1 percent of total park visitation.
Political compromise at the time of the park's creation limited the protected area to an arbitrary portion of the Canyonlands basin. Conservationists hope to complete the park by bringing the boundaries up to the high sandstone rims that form the natural border of the Canyonlands landscape.
The Colorado River and Green River combine within the park dividing it into three districts called the Island in the Sky, the Needles and the Maze. The Colorado River flows through Cataract Canyon below its confluence with the Green River.
The Island in the Sky district is a broad and level mesa to the north of the park between Colorado and Green river with many overlooks from the White Rim, a sandstone bench 1,200 feet (366 m) below the Island, and the rivers, which are another 1,000 feet (305 m) below the White Rim.
Chesler Park in the Needles
The Needles district is located east of the Colorado River and is named after the red and white banded rock pinnacles which dominate it, but various other forms of naturally sculptured rock such as canyons, grabens, potholes, and a number of arches similar to the ones of the nearby Arches National Park can be found as well. Unlike Arches National Park, where many arches are accessible by short to moderate hikes or even by car, most of the arches in the Needles district lie in back country canyons and require long hikes or four-wheel-drive trips to reach them.
The area was once home of the Ancestral Puebloans, of which many traces can be found. Although the items and tools they used have been largely taken away by looters, some of their stone and mud dwellings are well-preserved. The Ancestral Puebloans also left traces in the form of petroglyphs, most notably on the so-called Newspaper Rock near the Visitor Center at the entrance of this district.
The Chocolate Drops buttes above the Maze
The Maze district is located west of the Colorado and Green rivers, and is the least accessible section of the park, and one of the most remote and inaccessible areas of the United States.
A geographically detached section of the park located west-northwest of the main unit, Horseshoe Canyon Unit, contains panels of rock art made by hunter-gatherers from the Late Archaic Period (2000-1000 BC) pre-dating the Ancestral Puebloans. Originally called Barrier Canyon, Horseshoe's artifacts, dwellings, pictographs, and murals are some of the oldest in America. It is believed that the images depicting horses date from after 1540 AD, after the Spanish re-introduced horses to America.
