Driving Arizona: Flagstaff to Montezuma Castle

Driving the north-south route from Salt Lake City to Phoenix has been one of the most fascinating trips of my life, landscape-wise. This day was jam-packed, as we left the Grand Canyon shortly before noon, and made the winding (and elevated!) drive to Flagstaff, where we made a pitstop at Lowell Observatory and a diversion to Route 66 before carrying on through Sedona, Montezuma Castle National Monument, and finally our destination, the ranch in Wickenburg for the What If Conference.
