Flagstaff, Arizona

To the north and south of the Grand Canyon, lies the Kaibab National Forest. In fact, the Grand Canyon is the main divider between the north and south section. The forest is filled with miles and miles plants and wildlife. Take some time to stop off here and just enjoy Mother Nature. Most people like to stop here and take some time to go hiking and explore what all the forest has to offer. There are tons of wild deer, bison, and more. If hiking is not your thing, there are plenty of side roads and trails that you can take to drive around and partly through the forest, so that you can still enjoy the wild.
