The Oak Creek Canyon is spectacular with giant mountains of colorful rock. We really enjoyed visiting Slide Rock State Park, a popular swimming area with flat rock along the creek.
At Red Rock State Park, we joined a park ranger that led us on a hour hike through the desert terrain, explaining the flora and formations as we hiked up and down the hillsides.
As we headed west, we came to Jerome, a mining town that is perched on the side of a mountain.
