(nr Flagstaff AZ)
Further up AZ-89A, there was a vista area that overlooked Oak Creek Canyon. So, I stopped to take some photos. The views were pretty impressive, and the paved walkway and viewing stations made it easy.
A large parking area, restrooms, and a visitor center which was closed, makes this a good rest stop between Sedona and Flagstaff. I only stopped long enough to get some pictures.
There was a native crafts market setup along the way to the viewpoints. Most were packing up to leave at that time, so I didn’t do any browsing.
I suspected this vista stop was fairly close to where I planned to camp. So, it was on to find the next forest boondocking spot.
