Thanks for the ideas. Given what we now know, I think our inclination will be to stay somewhere around Tucson, assuming we can find an acceptable place to stay at the right price. We've never been there and it looks like we'll be able to find things to do.

Phoenix wasn't really among our short list of places to stay, though we might spend a day or two there, at either end of our stay. To be clear, I wasn't comparing temperatures for Tucson with Phoenix, but with Sedona and the surrounding areas that we had been considering.

We lived in Alamogordo, New Mexico for 3 years about 30 years ago, so we do have an idea about the distances involved. If we stay around Tucson, we'll most likely spend our efforts exploring that part of the state and the Northern destinations would not be on our itinerary, unless on the way. We'll be coming into the state from the east along I-40, so can hit Petrified Forest, weather permitting.

We'll definitely be looking for some authentic Mexican food.
