Right Now

Arizona’s northernmost town, Fredonia, is remote and ravishing, the very picture of the American Southwest. 

Fredonia sits high on the Kaibab Plateau, near Utah and Nevada. History is intermingled here: Once home to the Kaibab-Paiute Tribe, it was later settled by cattle ranchers and Mormon pioneers.

Good luck trying to capture these impossibly beautiful expanses with your camera’s panoramic setting. Snap away, then savor the faraway vistas of endless rock and sky, dotted with sagebrush, piñon pine, and juniper at the lower elevations; spruce, firs, and aspens in the higher. The well-maintained highways that cut through the nearby Vermilion and Shinarump Cliffs – US 89 and State Route 89A – are among the most scenic in the West. 

Besides driving these open plains, there are numerous opportunities for rock climbing, hiking, biking, cultural exploration, and daydreaming. Consult the rangers at the North Kaibab District Office in Fredonia to obtain information and plan your excursion. Then get ready to be wowed.
