Fall Colors Overnighter to Flagstaff
October 6, 2022 @ 8:00 am – October 7, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Note that this is a weekday trip, Thursday-Friday, Oct. 6-7.
Early October is prime time for viewing the fall colors in Northern Arizona. This overnight trip follows the Red Rock Scenic Byway to Sedona, then twists up Oak Creek Canyon, where the leaves should be putting on their show!
When we arrive in Flagstaff we will have a buffet lunch at Grand Canyon Brewery Pub, then take a tour of the historic Riordan Mansion, one of the finest examples of American Arts and Crafts-style architecture open to the public today. The Riordan brothers were instrumental in establishing Flagstaff’s lumber and timber industry, and their efforts led to the establishment of the Normal School, which grew into today’s Northern Arizona University, and the creation of Coconino County with Flagstaff as its county seat.
After the tour we’ll take the short drive to the Little America Hotel, where we will check in and enjoy social time with our fellow club members at Flagstaff’s only AAA approved Four Diamond hotel. “Set in 500 acres of Ponderosa Pine forest, Little America Flagstaff combines inviting hospitality with the natural beauty of Northern Arizona.”
A special group rate has been arranged, which you can take advantage of when you register for this event on MotorsportReg.com (link below).
On Friday morning after breakfast we will take the scenic drive to the Snowbowl. The fall colors should be dazzling as we head up toward Arizona’s tallest peak. Options on the mountain include lunch at the Agassiz Restaurant, where you can “kick back, relax and take in the mountain views at 9,500 ft.,” and you may want to ride the Arizona Gondola to view the dramatic scenery of Northern Arizona from a bird’s eye view peaking at 11,500 feet.
The cost for this tour is $48 per person, which includes the buffet lunch and Riordan Mansion tour. You will make your own room reservations at the Little America hotel, taking advantage of a group rate, as noted above. There is no group dinner planned, but many will opt for a reservation at the restaurant on-site at Little America.
Sign up today, as our club’s driving tours typically sell out early!
