    You forgot my beloved Sedona. We didn’t have enough time this past summer to check out too many places in AZ… but we loved Sedona and plan on checking out a few more areas. Thanks for the video.

  30. CarportCarl on March 30, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    I have been here 47 years. I have always heard Picacho pronounced as Pi Cach o.

  31. Joseph Walter on March 30, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    I’ve lived in Flagstaff for a few years now and have explored alot of the forest outside of town, here are some recommendations for anyone looking for a good place to camp near flag. I would recommend forest roads near Lockett meadow, the cinders OHV area, and Ashurst lake. If you go to the Flagstaff Ranger Station they have free maps of all forest roads in Coconino County, the maps show what roads have dispersed camping as well as seasonal designations/closures. Those maps have helped me and my friends find some stellar spots around Flag, hope this helps.

  32. Trilby Arnold on March 30, 2020 at 4:11 pm

    Please; it’s pronounced Pee-ka-cho Peak.

  33. Purple Moose on March 30, 2020 at 4:12 pm

    Hopefully the wrong crowd won’t see this video and ruin these beautiful places

  34. Neil Richey on March 30, 2020 at 4:12 pm

    can you kayak or float tube in lynx lake?

  35. Ryan Smith on March 30, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    Enjoyed the video.

  38. Gail Robinson on March 30, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    On way home to Texas tomorrow after visiting Arizona. Stayed near Tombstone, and spent time at Lost Dutchman (had great site) and Dead Horse Ranch State Parks.( great base for visiting Sedona, Meteor Crater, and Painted Desert and Petrified Forest National Parks.) Definitely want to visit again because there’s so much to see there. Wonderful state.

  39. Faith Strachan on March 30, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    Hello Sedona?

  40. Lori Shoaf on March 30, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    New subscriber, and a fellow Arizonan as well. Loved this video! We do have wonderful places to visit here. Thanks for all these campgrounds (some I never heard of). We plan to full-time RV next year, so these campgrounds are helpful as we get ready to leave.

  41. Gringo on March 30, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Love Az.
