Arizona and Colorado

Leave the cities behind and get out into the wide open spaces. First destination is Phoenix, Arizona - the starting point for a number of adventures - Grand Canyon, Native American ruins, desert excursions and more. Next stop is Colorado, or more specifically, Grand Junction and then onto the world famous mountain resort of Aspen. Think hiking, biking, first class restaurants and bars.
