The view from Kingman in the morning is stunning. It also puts the sun behind you for better photo ops.

If you make your trip from Kingman and go over the pass, it means you are going to go through Oatman and you will want to stop there. However if you just pass through Oatman and go down to 95 business through Bullhead to 163... More

I am unsure of where you are headed for in the Grand Canyon, but Oatman appears to be out of the way as Oatman is halfway between Kingman and the CA border. From the Grand Canyon you could head south toward I-40 and... More
