Girls trip: Arizona hiking

Sometimes girls just want to get away. There’s nothing like reconnecting with your college roommate during a road trip through the great outdoors.

Be sure to make time for a walk through stunning Lower Antelope Canyon. You must by accompanied by a Navajo guide. Book well in advance and select an early tour to avoid crowds. And bring a sweater or jacket – it can be brisk in the depths of the canyon.

Although several pups frolicked up the 1.2 mile path with ease, Cathedral Rock trail is somewhat difficult with steep upward rock climbs. The pinnacle offers fresh air and vast landscape views of beautiful red rock formations. Great place to watch the sun set.

From the clifftop of Horseshoe Bend near Page, AZ, you can watch boats motoring up the Colorado River. Tourists dance eerily close to the 300 meter drop to get the perfect photo. It’s a great place to stop for a snack and enjoy people watching.

Devil’s Bridge, the largest natural sandstone arch in the Sedona area, is well worth the 1.8 mile rount-trip trek. This is a popular hiking trail with limited parking, so aim for an early start to get the “middle of nowhere” feel. The arch is wider than it looks, so don’t be shy in taking an obligatory selfie photo.
