Day 33

Today, after our stay at the hotel in Flagstaff, we were to continue our journey. As I didn’t want to miss out on the area around Flagstaff, we dropped off at Canyon Vista Campground and hiked a few miles, including some routes I already knew.

Afterwards, the trail became particularly beautiful and rocky. However, the day was quite short as we set off late and I didn’t want to hike too far so that I could visit the National Monument the next day.

Day 34

Our start was delayed as the national monument I wanted to visit didn’t open until 9am. This only meant a small detour and a $15 entrance fee for some more attractive trails and an interesting visitor center with fresh water and restrooms.

Shortly afterwards, the trail unfortunately became rather monotonous, and the section through Painted Canyon was also rather unspectacular. After we crossed the first interstate, it was also very noisy for a long time.

Once we reached Highway 89, we found a gas station where we had coffee and a slushie. After that, the road became much more scenic and mountainous again. We spent the night north of Flagstaff after passing the 600-mile mark.
