The guides will take you up to see some fabulous ruins on your journey as well as show you a gorgeous view of the Painted Desert. As you continue toward the Grand Canyon you will make another stop at the famous Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo Reservation which is a great place to buy some nice jewelry and souvenirs. You will be entering the Grand Canyon through the East Rim stopping at various viewpoints along the way.

Once you spend some time in the Grand Canyon Village browsing around and enjoying some cocktails at the Bright Angel Lodge, you will head to the rim to watch the beautiful sunset. After sunset you will be eating dinner right on the South Rim before you head back to Sedona.Dr. Paul Elliott will be this year’s Scientific Program Chair.
