Day 6Travel back to Phoenix via the fabulous White Mountains of Arizona. This is truly John Wayne country. Years after the pioneers tamed the land, the "Duke" himself owned a Cattle Ranch and rode the range here. Visitors can talk with residents today who can personally recall history or family (one generation back), that lived in those wild times. Today, this very recent pioneer heritage is much in evidence. Five small towns in the area all nestle in beautiful, historic highland valleys each with its own distinct personality. Drive via Payson and descend through wonderful desert scenery on your way to the Valley of the Sun.
