Visiting Grand Canyon with your pet ? Things you should know…
Bottled water – in individual disposable containers – is no longer sold in the park.
Petrified Forest National Park
The park offers a variety of off trail and backcountry hiking among the remnants of a prehistoric forest of colorful specimens from small shards to massive trunks.
As the forest died or was knocked down by wind or water, many trees were carried downstream and buried by layers of sediment. The logs soaked up groundwater and silica from volcanic ash and over time crystallized into quartz.
Walnut Creek National Monument – Ancient Cliff Dwellings
In the densely-wooded plateau country about 10 miles southeast of downtown Flagstaff, Arizona there is a carved 600-foot-deep canyon. During the 12th to 13th centuries, cliff dwelling Sinagua Indians constructed alcoves in the sandstone along the steep well-protected ledges.
An easy walking 0.9 mi long loop trail descends 185 feet into the canyon passing 25 cliff dwelling rooms, around a small butte before returning to the visitor center.
