1) Has anyone bought the National Park Pass? Is it worthwhile?
Have had one since 2016.
If you are going to visit 3/4 parks over the course of the year, it is worth it.
I have always bought them at the entrance to the park (including this year).

How do you navigate to Trailheads for Hikes?
It took 3 tries and an hour of circling  to get to the Camelback hike after Google Maps repeatedly mislead us....

Hi Everyone,

I'm planning a trip for next week. Here is my schedule, let me know if it makes sense. Me and DW are not hikers and we'll probably only do the easy stuff. If you can reccomend easier hikes, we'll definitely listen!

Sunday - Fly in to LAS, walk around see the strip
Monday - Do Valley of Fire National Park
Tuesday - Drive to GC South Rim with stops at Hoover Dam, Historic Chloride (worth it?) and sleep at GC Village
Wednesday - GC South Rim then drive to Sedona
Thursday - Do Sedona hikes and maybe the jeep tour (worth it?) drive to where we'll be for Shabbos

We're still debating where to be for Shabbos. I want something beautiful, but obviously priced well. I have points avail / willing to pay for cert etc. I'm open to recommendations.

I did find a beautiful house with a private pool that is available for 40,000 UR a night. But it doesn't have the views.

Do the Broken Arrow tour with Pink Jeep.  We had a great time. Also, Flagstaff is a good place for Shabbos, has a Chabad.  If you have time, Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest NP.  Arrive early at the Hoover Dam so you can do the better tour, perhaps you can buy online.

Thank you for the response!

I was debating between Sedona and Scottsdale, now you're saying Flagstaff. The Chabad isn't important, but is a plus. I'm looking for go for luxury with views.

In Phoenix where can I buy Shabbos food?

Scottsdale may actually be a better choice, depending on the weather.  I forgot you were going now.

imperialkosher.com has Shabbos takeout.

What's the best hotel to stay at? I would want a suite with a kitchenette if possible. I was looking at the Boulder or Scottsdale Resort
