I flew to Phoenix from San Diego on Sept. 30, rented a car and drove towards Flagstaff which is around 150 miles north of Phoenix. In stead of going by Interstate 17 North, I took a scenic road which goes through Sedona. Reached Flagstaff in the evening and then to Chinle, AZ at night which is further 225 miles North-east of Flagstaff. These two maps - map 1 and map 2 show how I drove. The green part that you see in the map close to Chinle is Canyon De Chelly National Monument.
