There are a variety of destinations to explore in Arizona beyond the Grand Canyon, which for this trip, is omitted. Scottsdale outside the urban sprawls of Phoenix and Sedona (Red Rock Country) are the highlights of this short 4 day adventure.
Cornell University Botanic Gardens is a nice retreat to visit on a hot summer day. The botanic gardens are great for a quick stroll while visiting the campus. A great to make while out at the Finger Lakes region of NY.
