A is for Arizona, ABC Wednesday, July 22, 2009
















































































A is for Arizona! We love to travel to our neighboring state. It is only 4 hours to Phoenix, then another hour up to Prescott, and then maybe 2 hours to Flagstaff. From Flagstaff, it is a day's drive up to Monument Valley and another day to Canyon de Chelly. Arizona has so many varied regions, from the mountains to the desert. Sunset Crater and volcano is also unique...the lava flows contrast with the aspens that grow out of them. And Flagstaff's San Francisco Peaks are spectacular! Enjoy this tour of Arizona. ABC Wednesday for July 22, 2009.

It must be fantastic to be a photographer in Arizona - at least if you judge from these pictures.

I love Arizona, too, and would love to go back and visit my g'friend there again. I really liked Sedona, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon. :D

Wow ... that second to last photo! Where is that? I know it's Arizona, but what is the name of that formation? It's stunning!

Arizona is an amazing state and your photographs are fantastic!
I enjoyed Prescott so very much when I was in Arizona I went back for a second day! ( I wanted to do some shopping!)
Happy ABC Wednesday!

What a spectacular state to travel to. Love those rock formations.

Jay, I think you mean the one from Canyon de Chelly...the really tall rock formation is Spider Rock. It is a very sacred place to the Navajo...very spirtual. Every time we go there, we are awed by it. If you stand quietly, you can actually hear the wind move through the brush and the cows WAY DOWN below in the canyon! Very special and spirtual place for ALL people.

RuneE, I'm not a professional photographer! Far from it! But, hubby and I do enjoy taking amateur photos! We actually live in California, near Palm Springs.

I, too, love Arizona. Your photos are superb... Is that the old copper mine in Ajo? Great trip!
