You Tell Us: What's Your 'Arizona Adventure'?

An item published recently in The Arizona Republic caught our eye. It lists five of "Arizona's coolest adventures": rafting the Colorado River (pictured), hiking Aravaipa Canyon, rounding up cattle, taking a jeep tour in Sedona and jumping out of a plane.

The full article is worth a read, although we're not so sure about that last item. You can jump out of a plane anywhere, after all.

But there's plenty more adventure to be had in Arizona than just these five experiences. If you had to recommend one Arizona adventure to a visitor to the Grand Canyon State, what would it be, and why? Let us know in the comments below this post. To get you started, here are a few suggestions from the Arizona Highways staff:

We look forward to hearing your suggestions!

I have hiked the Grand Canyon many times but this year I finally was able to get drawn in the lottery to hike to The Wave in northern Arizona. It was a feast of beautiful sights along the way and then being at The Wave was filled with lots of picture taking and a sense of completion of a bucket list item.

Hiking the Grand Canyon and staying at Phantom Ranch, playing in the Colorado River; several days in a houseboat on Lake Powell; going Snow Skiing at Snowbowl or Sunrise and playing in a pool in the Valley area on the same weekend; camping at Havasu Falls ; spending any time at all in Monument Valley; camping in, near, around Sedona

I had never heard of this "hike" before and in researching hikes to take my son on who was visiting from PA, I discovered the Lava Tube Cave. Not only did I don my first "headlamp", I enjoyed the pleasure of turning off the light and appreciating the total darkness of the cave. Totally worth a trip, but bring you jacket, non-skid shoes and definitely, a light!
