Serene places to go in Arizona
Sometimes, we like to take a break and really reflect on life. And if your a nature lover and a road-trip enthusiast like myself, you just gotta get in the car and drive!
So, I looked up some places where you can go, where there are not a bunch of people, light traffic, and great scenery, especially if your into photography, camping, or hiking. See, it is okay to want to get away, and there is nothing bad about Calmness and peace!
Coal mine canyon
Bill Williams River National wildlife Refuge
East Clear Creek
So, these are great places to check out. But please be careful, as I have mentioned, use common sense, if you go alone, make sure someone knows where and what time you will be back. I bring a weapon when I go out to remote places, but most of the time, my husband goes with me! Plus, I have a 9-1-1 button in my car! Always check weather and use necessary precautions. Have a beautiful experience with nature!

Sunset Crater; The volcano in Arizona
Sunset Crater is located North of Flaggstaff. It is the baby of a string of volcanoes related to the nearby San Francisco peaks. It last erupted in 1085.
You may ask, how did they get that year? Well, it was derived through tree rings, and archaeologists and geologists have come up with the eruption around A.D. , when lava flow went out about 2.5 K.M. Northwest.
You can see the partial revegetation of pines and in Spring, flowers will grow out!
This volcano is a cinder cone volcano . Sunset Crater is composed of lava fragments called fragments called Cinders created when molten rock is spewed from a crack in the ground.
Twenty five bucks per carload, free to disabled vets, show V.A card. Open 9-5 P.M. There are many trails to hike, you cannot climb the volcano and this volcano is still considered active but won’t erupt for another 1,000+ years so don’t worry, lol 😂
