I am considering this trip April 19-22. I am interested in sharing with a female roommate. I also live in Phoenix/Scottsdale and would like to share driving expenses which may include car rental. I can be reached at nfthal@yahoo.com or nfthaler@yahoo.com

We look forward to sharing Navajo culture and the beauty of Canyon de Chelly with you.

We will be driving from Wisconsin and plan to come through Albuquerque. Does anyone have suggestions of places to visit on our way to De Chelly? Looking for more sites of early settlements.

my husband and I are coming over from Albuquerque. I've seen the canyon before but he hasn't. We're looking forward to it.

My wife and I have seen Canyon De Chelly years ago from the pullouts on the rim and have wanted to come back and tour the canyon so we are trying out Road Scholar to accomplish this.

I will be coming over from Grand Junction, Co should anyone want to share traveling.

This will be my first trip on Road Scholar and I am very excited. I would love to communication with other who will be there.

We are first time RS also. We are driving from Oregon, to Idaho, Utah and then Arizona. Looking forward to the road trip.

Hi, Is anyone going to be driving from Phoenix/Scottsdale to Canyon de Chelly on March 5,6,7? I'm trying to do two programs back to back, but the backs do not quite fit. The van is quite expensive. Do you know if there is bus service? Thanks!
