~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note:  Route 66 is hard to find east of Flagstaff. Sometimes all that’s left is a decaying road a few hundred feet off Interstate 40. But west of Ashfork, you can pick up Route 66 and drive it all the way into Kingman. The scenery is decidedly barren but it’s still a cool ride. A lot of folks like to stop at the Hackberry General Store. You can’t get gas there, but you can take a step back in time and buy some Route 66 memorabilia.

~ Region: Arizona's West Coast & Northern Arizona

~ Distance: 400 miles (Topock to Ash Fork to Lupton)

~ Roadway: Oatman Hwy to State Route 66 and all the way to Lupton

~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note: This is one of my favorite drives when new visitors come to the state. It’s easy, about 90 minutes from the Valley, and you’re delivered to the Tonto Natural Bridge. It’s so nice, especially on a hot, summer day to climb down the steps and get into the cavern. The historic Goodfellow Lodge is worth a peak with lots of information about the area. And, although I’ve never done it, I think you can make arrangements to stay the night there and even cook your own dinner.

Jerome-Clarkdale-Cottonwood Historic Road

Scenic Drives - Jerome-Clarkdale-Cottonwood Historic Road

The historic mining town of Jerome sits on the north east slope of Mingus Mountain. Check this out while driving the Jerome-Clarkdale-Cottonwood Historic Road.

~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note: I love the drive to Jerome, especially from Prescott. If you come from that direction you get to go over the top of Mingus Mountain and you meet Jerome on the east side. It’s crazy how fast the vegetation changes from grassland to chaparral to Ponderosa Pines in a very short period of time.

I tell folks Jerome is like Bisbee, except it’s on a hill while Bisbee is mainly in a canyon. Jerome is famous for authentic everything, from watering holes to antiques. There’s even a hotel they say is haunted, but I think they only say that to get more customers. I’ve stayed there several times and never saw anything remotely ghostly.

Down the hill in Clarkdale, there are some tremendous restaurants.

~ Region: North Central Arizona

~ Distance: 10 miles

~ Roadway: Begins on SR 89A in Jerome and travels along SR 89A all the way to Bridgeport. Highway 89A curves toward the historic town of Jerome through a series of scenic switchbacks and a climb up and down the summit of Mingus Mountain.

Mogollon Rim Road Scenic Drive

Scenic Drives - Mogollon Rim Road Scenic Drive

Mogollon Rim can be seen by driving the Mogollon Rim Road Scenic Drive.

~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note: This is one of the most scenic drives you can take in Arizona, but be aware, on a map, it looks like a rather short trip. It is not. The road is dirt and bumpy. It can be dusty at times. The road turns and winds its way along the rim. You don’t get anywhere fast. And why would you want to with the views of the valleys to the south and the Ponderosa trees around you.  We always bring lunch. Find a quiet spot. You can usually find a spot where someone else has parked or camped so you don’t have to off-road and tear up the forest. I’ve seen sunrises and sunsets along the rim and I can’t say which I like better. And I’ve watched huge thunderstorms in the distance rumbling in the Valley below. Take your four-wheel drive if you have one.

~ Region: North Central Arizona

~ Distance: 42 miles

~ Roadway: Forest Road 300 (AKA Rim Road) between State Routes 260 and 87.

~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note: It’s so out of the way but so worth the drive. Take a jeep tour into the bottom or rent a horse. It’s a wonderful canyon full or Native American stories and lore. I’ve never failed to leave there without learning something new about the culture and myself.

Region: Northern Arizona

~ Distance: 100 miles

~ Roadway: This scenic drive consists of 2 roads in the Navajo Nation. The first section begins on Navajo Road 64 in Chinle and wraps around the north side of Canyon de Chelly. If you continue driving around the east side of Canyon de Chelly, you'll wrap back around and back into Arizona.  The second section begins on Navajo Route 12 from the state line down through Window Rock to I-40 at Lupton. The entire stretch would most likely be considered a scenic road by Arizona standards, but part of it is in New Mexico.

~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note: I haven’t been on that actual road but have been to Monument Valley on several occasions. It is what we all think of when we think of the old west.

My favorite stop near Kayenta is the Navajo National Monument. There are several ruins there. Betatakin is the closest and about a 5-mile round trip hike that’s pretty strenuous. Keet Seel is 17 miles away from the Monument and one of the great adventures in my life was when we were guided into the canyon on horses the entire round trip. The construction of the pueblos is amazing. The ride was one of the most scenic I’ve ever been on.

And on the way back, the guides, seeing that we could all handle the horses pretty well, let us “open them up” for a while and we pounded along the dry creek bed like thousands of horses before us. The guides told us later it’s easy to get the horses to run on the way back to the stables. They know dinner is waiting. You can’t just show up at Navajo National Monument and start hiking. There are some rules and guidelines. You should check out their website if you plan to go. That’s one of the places where I’d love to make a return trip.

Region: Northern Arizona

~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note: If you’re going to make one scenic drive in the state, outside of the Grand Canyon, this is it. From Sedona you wind your way along Oak Creek, slowly gaining elevation. Then at the north end of the canyon, a series of switchbacks take you to the top where you should take time to pull off at the overlook and enjoy the view. We saw one of the best sunsets of our life right there. It’s not a long drive, so stop and enjoy the creek, maybe have lunch. It’s almost hard to believe you’re in Arizona when you’re in Oak Creek Canyon.

Grand Canyon Loop

~ Chief Meteorologist Royal Norman's Editor's Note: It’s our favorite place on the planet. And believe me when I tell you, it looks so much different in person. If you follow the signs in Flagstaff, it will take you out west along the US 180 and you’ll eventually come to the town of Tusayan and, just after that, the main entrance to the canyon where most of the tourists enter. We’ve done that a bunch of times.

But we like to veer east out of Flagstaff and ride the US 89 up to Cameron where you catch State Route 64 which takes you right to the east entrance of the Grand Canyon. There are no lines there ever. And then you get to drive along the rim from east to west chasing the sun until you get to your destination hotel in the park, your campground, or a room back in Tusayan. Stay at El Tovar if you can. It’s a grand, old hotel with a wonderful breakfast and a reservation only dinner. All well prepared.

If you get lucky, and a couple of times we have, you’ll get a room with a balcony overlooking the canyon. Amazing. One last Grand Canyon tip. If you can go up in the winter, that’s the time to go. It’s prettier with the snow and there are a lot fewer people. But you know what? Anytime is a good time to be at the Canyon.

Region: Northern Arizona

~ Distance: 205 miles

~ Roadway: Take US 180 north from Flagstaff until the junction of SR 64.  Take SR 64 north and stay on it as it curves around and starts heading southeast until the junction of US 89. Take US 89 south to Flagstaff.
