Little Painted Desert County Park
This small overlook has a view of the painted desert. This is especially nice early in the morning and in the late afternoon, when slanting light enhances the colors and shadows reveal details of the geology. Head north of the park.

Hopi Mesas
The Hopi Mesas are located approximately 65 miles north of Homolovi State Park. Homolovi is the “Ancient Gateway to Hopi” and park staff will be glad to help you plan your visit to the mesas.

La Posada Hotel  
Located in Winslow, the La Posada was built in 1929 as one of the grand railroad hotels. It has extensive gardens, historic rooms and fine dining (although many diners are wearing jeans and T-shirts!). The railroad crossed the Little Colorado at this point for the same reason that the prehistoric trails used this ford — rock layers close to the surface of the river bed prevented the development of quicksand.

9-11 Memorial Remembrance Garden
The 9-11 Memorial Garden is dedicated to the tragic events of that September day in 2001 and Northern Arizona’s promise that “we will never forget”. The Remembrance Garden is located on the corner of East 3rd Street and Transcon Lane. (from I-40, exit 255). There you will find, as the centerpiece of the garden, the touching display of actual wreckage from the World Trade Center. The 14- and 15-foot beams were entrusted to the citizens of Winslow by the City of New York. They are the largest pieces given to any community in the nation.

This is a somewhat strenuous, although short, climb. Members of your group not wishing to make this climb can enjoy the shaded view from the platform. There is a fee to visit this site. Contact the park for contact information at (928) 386-5047.
