I had a business trip to Scottsdale, just outside Phoenix, so my wife decided to accompany me for the short 5-day excursion. We arrived at about noon on Saturday so quickly headed north to the Grand Canyon in our rented car - it is only about a 4 hour drive. Our timing was good, arriving at the spectacular sight just before sunset. After an evening there we wound our way back toward Phoenix by way of Sedona, a most enjoyable trip if you get the chance. It was then down to business for the next few days with a final tour of the countryside northeast of Phoenix during the afternoon of our final day. We were very impressed with the weather and the scenery in Arizona - give it a try! An evening photo of the Grand Canyon from the South Rim - looking east from Yavapai Point.

    An enjoyable trip around this corner of Arizona, Glenn. Perhaps my favourite state in al the US, though it's a few years now since I was last there. leyle

    The scenery seems not to have changed much, I remember it similar from 1989. Nice page here, but what is a "dude ranch"?

    Ah, you have so much more to explore in Arizona :-)) I think, desert blooming time is the best, less crowded and beautiful scenery ! And hihi - yes, fully agree with your view on Sedona as tourist trap :-)

    This is how I remember the Arid Zone too! Very hot but a wonderful desert feeling to it all.

    Your trip to the dude ranch sounds like a good time! The Grand Canyon is great - one of my favorite hikes of all time was there.

    Very interesting pages. We leave in two days for a week in Arizona over the Christmas holidays. Karen's mother lives in Tucson. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Your chances of a white Christmas seem better than ours.

    Your excellent page on Arizona reminds me of a 3 weeks round trip I did a few years ago in the West. Arizona is still a great souvenir.
