Alfas around Sedona 4th of July weekend

First: WOW what scenery you folks have in the North part of your state. The wife and I drove to Sedona this weekend where we stayed with other Alfisti for the weekend. We did the I40 route thru Flagstaff.
We did see 2 spiders on our driving around. We were Alfa-less this weekend due to the heat driving out from Calif. 114 F in Needles this afternoon.

Fri July 3 5pm a red Spider driving N out of Sedona on hwy 89
Sun July 5 in Jerome a green/blue Spider that seemed to belong to a "local". I tried to ask her a few questions but she was in a hurry driving around town doing errands. She refered to the car as "julie". It looked like the top had never been up, ever, but it ran well.

After a few bottles of wine 1 nite we came up with an idea for an Arizona tour:
Gather in Laughlin. Enjoy the pleasures
Next morning go the back way into Kingman on hwy 68
Lunch in Seligman and take the short stretch of Route 66 towards Flagstaff
Shop in Flagstaff. Leave in time to head to Sedona to arrive late in the afternoon to take advantage of the late afternoon sunlight on the incredible views of the Red Rock canyons.
Stay in Sedona.
Tour the next day. We had a blast going to Jerome

Paul-
If you get to the tentative organization point, my sis and her husband are long time locals in that area. While not Alfa owners, they are serious car people and would be willing and able to give you some info on roads, things to see (some awesome cliff dwellings and ruins) with good road acess, as well as mechanical assistance. They live at the base of Mingus Mtn. with a view of Jerome at night. Could be a lot cheaper to stay in up around Clarksdale or Cottonwood, 20 min. from Sedona.
It's best in the fall.
Sedona is a spendy place to stay. There is no low season there. It is beautiful though!

Northern Arizona is some of the most beautiful country in the world. My family and I cannot wait to get back up to flagstaff where we lived for over 10 years.
Awesome place, lots of alfa's and car people.

Jason-
Funny that you posted 15 min. after I confirmed my flight to Phoenix 11-3, return 11-13.
Will be splitting time between Cottonwood and Clarksdale.
Sadly, I must spend 3 days in Lake Havasu with my bro. All is not lost as he is a striped bass guide.
If there is a way, I'll try to hook up.
There's a Spider in Jerome I am determined to track down, and Flag is a good overnighter.
I get to drive my son's M3 for the duration. To suffer is to live...

Imoved to Flagstaff about five years ago from Northern California. Recently, I bought a 1986 spider veloce in Cali and brought it back to Flag. Now, I find this thread which I found very enjoyable.

From what I can tell, there are about 7-10 Alfa's in flag proper. one 750 or 101 Spider racer car and I think three Alfas' (1750 GTV, Milano ??, 164??, within a couple of miles; one GTV 2000 within six-seven miles. There are probably a few more not accounted for.

I am looking forward to running our spider over the same roads you have traveled in this thread. We have gone over the same roads many times but not in an Alfa. Looking forward to driving with the top down along the same path.

Enjoyed this thread.

Well, I hope I'm not out of line here, but I'm pretty sure this link is for public consumption: Picasa Web Albums - Tom
I've seen some great Alfa's in Sedona, and met some great Alfa owners.
