    Tell me about Flagstaff. Going there with the wife and a few other couples in early March. I plan on making the drive to the Grand Canyon one day. What else is cool?

    Are you guys outdoors people? Enjoy Breweries? Types of food? Sedona is fairly close.

    Love breweries. Enjoy the great outdoors. Love all types of food, especially the things done well native to that area. I’ve never been to Arizona so I’m open to anything.

    Lumberyard Brewery has probably the biggest selection of beer and food. 2nd best is probably Dark Sky brewery and has a pizza place inside. Def do a hike either in flagstaff or Sedona. Not sure how aggressive you want the hike to be, so I won't give any recommendations. I always go to a really good Thai place called Pato Thai. A great breakfast place is Mike and Ronda's.

    As Rover said, if you feel like driving to Page, probably about a 2 hour drive, horseshoe bend is a must but extremely busy, especially at sunset, thanks to IG. So is Antelope Canyon. Just Google either of those. You need a permit for Antelope.

    Sedona is such a weird town but such an incredible place to just look at. I love it

    Pizzicleta in Flagstaff is very good.

    Sedona Brewery in Sedona is a nice spot if you end up there. And Elote Cafe is probably the best restaurant.

    I have mixed feelings on Sedona. It’s beautiful but the dining and drink options are pretty limited and that’s typically how I enjoy experiencing places. It’s also extremely expensive.

    Appreciate the insight, fellas. I’ll screenshot and make sure to hit some of these spots.

    If you want something cool to do in Sedona, Pink Jeep Tours is a good time. Sounds touristy as hell (it is) but it’s a good way to see a ton of great spots in Sedona in a short amount of time

    Planning on being in Phoenix and Tempe in a couple weeks. I will be in the mood for Mexican food and some Bryce Drew tears

    my hikes to tackle in the Sedona area list is as follows, would welcome any insight from people who might be familiar with what is on/not on the list

    - Devil's Bridge Trail #120. Sounds like the road into this place can be really rough
    - West Fork of Oak Creek #108. There's apparently 14 miles of canyon that you can cover past the main trail. Was told there is like a $12 fee and that the trailhead fills up quickly
    - Brins Mesa Trail #119
    - Fay Canyon Trail #53
    - Doe Mountain Trail #60
    - Bear Mountain Trail #54 (sounds like this could be an all-day deal if you want it to be)
    - Cathedral Rock Trail #170

    Coconino National Forest is pretty absurd

    would recommend to park at Mescal Trailhead for Devil's Bridge. take the Mescal trail to Chuck Wagon trail and you will get easier parking, 2 extra miles of nice hiking (with good views at times), and avoid a shitty road that is populated with jeeps. do need to get out early though because if you want pictures on the bridge, the line starts to fill up early.

    I’m a patient man but waiting for people on the bridge made me want to beat the shit out of them. And they were probably very nice. But Jesus take the fucking picture already.

    One I did recently that I really liked was Hangover Trail. Probably my favorite hike in Sedona now

    The views up top are incredible
