I lover Flagstaff, AZ. If you love the outdoors, then you will love it here. You can go to the Grand Canyon. You can hike a volcano, you can see indigenous dwellings, you can go to Walnut Canyon and see the indigenous dwellings carved out of the mountain side. You can hike in a cave and go off-roading. The downtown area is cute with decent food and entertainment. Good coffee shops.

My favorite thing was going to this trout farm on the way to Sedona, Az. The best trout I have every tasted. You catch it, they clean it, then you grill it right there, surrounded by the mountains.

I arrived at night and went to a local bar because it was the only thing open and it was freezing out. Some drunk guy offered to let me sleep on his couch but he was so drunk that I thought it would be better to just sleep in my car. It was so cold though, I left my motor running the whole night. In the morning I warmed up at a cozy diner.

The bar was your run of the mill dive bar. Except the people there were exceptionally nice.

The diner let me brush my teeth and use the bathroom even after I had paid and left.
