Plan to rise early to watch the sunrise over the Grand Canyon, a truly magical sight to behold! Today, your journey will take you through the Kaibab National Forest to the historic Route 66 town of Flagstaff.
What you may not know is that Flagstaff played a significant part in man first landing on the moon! Flagstaff proved to be the ideal location for training astronauts. In fact, every one of the 12 astronauts who eventually walked on the moon trained in Flagstaff. The rocky depths of Meteor Crater and the cosmic views from Flagstaff’s dark skies provided the ideal place for lunar buggy testing, geology training, mission simulations and moon mapping. The 50th Anniversary of the moon landing occurs on July 20, 2019. For those of us old enough to remember, it was a remarkable time. Apollo 11 was launched by a Saturn V rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Neil Armstrong, Mission Commander and subsequently the first person to walk on the moon, was joined by Buzz Aldrin - Lunar Module Pilot and Michael Collins - Command Module Pilot.
Fifty years on and you can immerse yourself in epic Apollo Mission moments in this area with visits to Meteor Crater, Sunset Crater Volcano National Park, Lowell Observatory, the US Geological Survey Astrogeology Science Centre and the Museum of Northern Arizona.
