GLOBUS 2023: Lost Canyons of the Southwest (AC)
9 days from Phoenix to Las Vegas
Everything in life has its ups and downs, including this fascinating tour of Arizona that directs your eyes to ancient cliff dwellings, towering spires, the deepest of canyons, and the deepest of mysteries. Exactly how did the Sinagua Indians reach their cliffside, five-story, high-rise at Montezuma Castle? Explore these enigmas and more as you visit the lost canyons and cultures of the American Southwest. Guided jeep tours through Canyon de Chelly National Monument and the red rock scenery of Sedona get you closer to the secrets within the region's sandstone formations, as do adventuresome train rides on the Verde Canyon Scenic Railroad and the Grand Canyon Railway. From Phoenix to Vegas, you'll enjoy sightseeing in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Jerome - plus a visit to Boulder City's Hoover Dam Museum. A visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's modern winter home, Taliesin West, as well as time in Meteor Crater Natural Landmark, are additional sights sure to leave an impact.
