Arizona has so much to see. The Grand Canyon, snow and pines to the north, Montezuma’s Castle, Crater Lake, the proximity to California, and Mexico. This page has some of the scenic pictures of Jerome, Tombstone, Crater Lake, The Lava Fields near Flagstaff, Dinosaur fossils found in Arizona, the travel and adventures in Arizona are unlimited. Phoenix is just hours form the Grand Canyon, Sedona, flagstaff and of course San Diego CA. Shopping, the arts; Arizona is so diverse – one minute you are in 360 day a year sunshine and in an hour you are in the cool tall pine country.   How about a day trip to Mexico?  In 5 short hours you can be in Rocky Point Mexico, on the northern shore of the Sea of Cortez.  Have you ever had fresh caught shrimp?

Rich with heritage dating back to the old west, Arizona is very eclectic with a fusion of the Old West, California influence, and Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. One of the the few states whose cultural differences are so perspicuous, you would think you were in a completely different state as you travel from city to city. How many states can talk about Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, Jesse James, the history of Arizona is nothing short of fascinating. Did you know that this desert state was a mecca of volcanic activity at one time, which these lava fields are littered with dinosaur bones?

After that day trip, you arrive home to your own private Spanish influenced desert oasis.   The back yards remind me of little private resorts, with pools,  desert flora and endless sunshine.
