    Sedona Sports & Outdoors

    This is my favorite trail in all of Sedona. The trail head is at the end of Boynton Canyon rd near the entrance of Enchanted Spa and Resort. The trail goes along the property of Enchanted Spa for a little about 1 mile. This is the rockiest part of the trail. Soon after leaving the view of the spa, the trail becomes flat and sandy. A pleasure for...

    Grand Canyon Sports & Outdoors

    If you want a special hike in the Grand Canyon, go in the winter. I was there around dec 16th and it was perfect. No crowds, very quit and nice sunny weather for pictures with the snow. There can be fog in the mornings until 11 am. But if you want to hike down this should be no problem (ask the rangers). We had to return for a second day because...

    Grand Canyon National Park Sports & Outdoors

    Some places you can't get to without hiking. So, if you are capable or capable of getting into shape, please try it. This shot is taken from the hike to Ribbon Falls, over halfway across the Grand Canyon. This is a place you cannot get to by mule. Sure, you can take the mule down to Phantom Ranch. If that is what you like, please do but if you are...

  • Rock Climbing

    Sedona Sports & Outdoors

    The abundance of high red rock walls, cliffs and spires provide an almost unlimited number of climbing routes for technical rock and free climbers. Since many of these walls are made of sandstone, which can break easily, these routes are not for beginners. But don't worry about being left without an opportunity for some vigirous exercise. Sedona's...

  • Spring Training

    This is probably the best thing about Arizona. A large majority of professional baseball teams have their Spring training facilities in the Phoenix area.This is SO much fun - make it a family road trip and head out there for Spring Break. Even just attending one game is a real different experience from attending a regular-season game. Those games...

  • Bank One Ballpark

    Completed in 1998, Bank One Ballpark is the home of Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks.

The roof is constructed of 9,000,000 pounds (4,082,400 kilograms) of structural...

  • hiking & backpacking are great sports!

    Hiking and backpacking are great in the dry sunny Arizona climate but you need to be prepared for the elements which change dramatically depending on where in the state you are hiking. One thing you have to worry about everywhere in the sunny state is protecting your skin from ultraviolet rays. Along the same lines is the need to hydrate. It's very...

    There are over 17 miles of hiking trails in the Chiricahua National Monument. They range from short easy trails that are handicapped accessable, to difficult trails almost 10 miles long. The trails lead through magnificent rhyolite formations, forrests of juniper, oak, pine and fir trees, rolling meadows, and Bonita Creek. An abundance of wildlife...

  • Bank One Ballpark

    As stated on my main page, I don't really like Arizona. My one exception - there's always at least one exception - is the Major League ballpark in Phoenix. My goal is to visit every single one so of course I had to go to Phoenix on my quest but, I was pleasantly surprised.2008 is the 10th Anniversary of the expansion team, the Arizona Diamondbacks....

This is a much better...

  • Take a hike!

    There are so many hikes that you can do in Arizona, but, probably the best known ones are around the Grand Canyon. THe hike to the canyon floor is amazing and was definitley my favourite. It is very tough in summer if you go there and back in a day but is worth it. The other option is to hike around the rim - a much much easier option, but offers...

    I thought where we lived had lots of premier hiking, but Arizona is right up there too, with tons of hiking trails. There's something for all abilities, ranging from the strenuous Grand Canyon trails to flat, desert trails, perfect for strolling.We never got a chance to hike in the Grand Canyon, due to snow, but enjoyed many desert trails and some...
