Spring Break in Arizona and New Mexico

I took this trip during the spring break of 1996. It was organized by the SIUC Recreational Center. There was about 15 people present, we had a van and a U-Haul trailer behind and drove all the way there and back.

Trip plan (Overall map):
Drive from Carbondale to Phoenix, Az. (30 hrs.) - Three days of hiking in Gila Wilderness Area, about one hour drive east of Phoenix - Grand Canyon (it was snowing here, so we were there only one night) - Sedona, Az. (Red Rock State Park) - Tuscon, Az. - White Sands Natl. Mon., N.M. (sandy desert between Las Cruces a Alamogordo - drive back to Carbondale
