Flop the Frog goes to Arizona

Flop the Frog had quite an adventurous week in Arizona! He road-tripped all over the place to Page, Sedona and Flagstaff.  He hiked, swam and climbed rocks which was perfect since he usually has a hard time sitting still. Take a look at some of his greatest selfies below.

 

Flop’s adventures started with a tour of the Lower Antelope Canyon. He had to go down about four staircases to get into the canyon, but once he did he was amazed with the colors that ranged from bright oranges to blues and purples based on how the light hit the rocks. The guide said in the morning they have to take all of the scorpions and snakes out!

His next adventures involved swimming and kayaking in Lake Powell with Lone Rock in the distance, hanging out and enjoying the scenic views in Page, visiting the Glen Canyon Dam and hiking a little bit to see Horseshoe Bend!  We explained to Flop that it wasn’t an actual horse that made the impression but many years of erosion.

Within the Coconino National Forest Flop visited a couple different ancient ruins (pueblos) in the Wupatki National Monument. Flop found it hard to believe that these are around 900 years old!

Best of all, Flop got to visit the Grand Canyon, one of the wonders of the world.  The hike on the Bright Angel trail was breathtaking, metaphorically the views were beautiful and physically the 3 mile hike back uphill was exhausting.

After a long day of hiking the Grand Canyon, Flop opted for a Pink Jeep tour in Sedona the next day.  He even got to take the wheel for a couple minutes.

Flop had a great week exploring some new places and learning about nature. Behind him is the tallest point in Arizona, Humphrey’s peak. You can’t see it from here, but there was even some spots of snow at the top!
