Arizona 1

There are many interesting places in Arizona and probably the most famous is the Grand Canyon

Here are a few tidbits...
You could pile four 1,300-foot skyscrapers on the top of each other and they still would not reach the rim.

Because elevation changes weather, the canyon itself created it's own weather.

We can enjoy the Grand Canyon today thanks to Teddy Roosevelt who first visited it in 1903 and was deeply moved by it. In 1906 Roosevelt signed a bill that proclaimed the area the Grand Canyon Game Reserve, and two years later, he made it a nation monument. Of the Grand Canyon, he said "Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it and man can only mar it.

Sunday Jaunt

I have mentioned before that when the occasion comes that both hubby and I are off from interpreting at church we take a little Sunday jaunt and this past Sunday was one of those times. We went to breakfast here
They have the very best breakfast ever and I will show you more pictures of this place another time because this is also our normal Monday and Friday night place.

We took a long drive up to Camp Verde and the vegetation never dissapoints....from hills
to  Teddy Bear Cholla

We headed back towards home in the afternoon and took the back roads so we could have lunch here....
Wild Horse West  

This place has been here for years and years and is out of nowhere but it has a reputation and is always busy. It is pretty unique and here are some pictures...
