Top o' the Preist

Need DIVERSIONS! i drive from PA to CA via Rt. 40 & 66. Would like to first maybe do a float trip somewhere in AZ or NM. Any diversions there (or anywhere) would be cool. Hot springs, 2-3 day hike, Going to Mt. Whitney-San Fran (relatives)-Valley-meadows-teton-then...
I would love to hear about secret diversions (climbing is the easy tick list)anywhere on this route!

Several amusing Rt.66 historical places/items along the way. Nice half day, inexpensive river rafting trips down the Colorado from under the dam outside of Vegas. Actually sounds like a dream motorcycle road trip.

There are some good places to climb just about an hour north and south of I40 in Arkansas. If you are looking for a pit stop around there, i would check out either Mt. Magazine or Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. HCR has tons of steep sandstone sport climbs. Also about 4 miles from HCR is some deep water soloing and cliff jumping. I thinks the place is called kyle's landing. Mt. Mag has some quality trad climbs including one called The nose that is worth stopping for. Good luck on the trip. Sounds fun.

Try rafting on the Rio Chama in New Mexico. Not big water, but
a beauty.

Oak Creek Canyon just South of Flagstaff.
Bring a pair of jean shorts for the natural water slide.

There is climbing too.

Petrified Forest off of Rt. 40 is an interesting drive. The "World's Largest Teepee" is somewhere near there as well, at least it was in the '70's.

Meteor Crater- Drive an hour on a two lane road to pay to see a giant hole.

Four Corners- Get a photo of you with a limb in four states.

Mesa Verde- Anasazi cliff dwellings

First climb after knee surgery <br />

Its onl;y rumored that there is climbing in the vacinity of oak creek canyon, only rumors (seriously, if you are in the area and want to climb, look me up).

Not to miss (if you can get a permit) is Havasupi Falls (google it and you can find beta on getting permits).

We were in Sedona this past spring. Some really cool things to do/see would be:
- Monument Valley (get a Navajo guide and do a tour of the backcountry- you'll see arches and Anasazi sites that you can't see by yourself from the car)
- Mountain biking in Sedona (some of the best off-road biking anywhere. Rentals and trail beta are widely available in town).
- Palatki is a 1000 yr old Sinaguan cliff dwelling in a beautiful box canyon near Sedona. Much less visited than similar sites.

Old Greg with his downstairs mix-up.

I think you will be close to Carlsbad Caverns on your route so don't miss that. I was so taken by the place that I got all veklempt when I walked down into the natural opening. Impossible to describe adequately. Back in the day, some cavers filled some helium baloons in the cave, floated them to the ceiling (275 feet above them) and into a small opening, hooked onto a stalag(is it tite or mite?) and then used ascenders to climb into the opening and discovered a new cave. The rope is still hanging there, in the Big Room (17 football fields big!). And, Area 51 is up the road just a little bit if'n yer in to "somniferous almond-eyes" -Tool, Rosetta Stoned.
