Going to AZ in the summer? Trying to beat the heat? Pack a sweater. Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon and most of Utah are usually in the 40s at night, even in August!

You did the whole drive round trip and a hike? How far did you go on the hike (how many miles)?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

It was 7.5 hours driving. We stopped at Sedona for about an hour. Did a hike for an hour total. Headed up to GC, got there late, around 2 IIRC, we managed to get to Cedar Ridge on the South Kaibab trail which according to Wikipedia is 1.5 miles away. Took us about 2 hours or more. We got out right before dusk which I think was at 5.

We got to see OOOOH AAHHHHHH Point on the way ;D :D :P

Didn't meet any rabbis. There was no minyan in the yeshiva because it was bein hazmanim. I am assuming that there's only one yeshiva.

Never heard of last chance. IIRC I was at a yellow building on 7th I think with a shul on the second floor I think. Next door to a grocery store or gas station or both. Make sense?

If you don't have any kids and are adventures I would recommend renting ATV's as opposed to taking the Jeep tour
-1 You can ATV anywhere but Sedona is Pink Jeep tour, just as Colorado is skiing.

A jeep tour! It is just really cool how they go out onto the rocks. Best jeeping I ever did. We stayed in Sedona for a week and that was our favorite activity that we did there.

There is a water park in a natural setting I think it's called slide rock. I did not go but IIRC someone who was with us took her little kids there and was raving about it.
