We go to the Apache Junction area as our daughter lives in Tempe.
As a general rule we avoid the interstates but am aware of that section of I-40 around Winslow. Homolovi is a nice State Park. One time there they had a fire ban in place. Some foreign tourists had a roaring one going with gust to about 30 miles and hour.
Senator Wash is to busy for our tastes but we have stayed at Crystal Hills.
Our first Christmas with our daughter we spent at Organ Pipe; not busy at all.
