In Beauty may you walk.
All day long may you walk.
Through the returning seasons may you walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may you walk.
With grasshoppers about your feet may you walk.
With dew about your feet may you walk.

With Beauty may you walk.
With Beauty before you, may you walk.
With Beauty behind you, may you walk.
With Beauty above you, may you walk.
With Beauty below you, may you walk.
With Beauty all around you, may you walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of Beauty,
lively, may you walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of Beauty,
living again, may you walk.
It is finished in Beauty.
It is finished in Beauty.

Navajo Blessing


We spent two weeks in Arizona, and have discovered that this, to us, was a trip of a lifetime.

We have fallen in love with everything Arizona: The warm, friendly people (and great weather), the gorgeous and huge variety of scenery, and the adventure of discovering native ruins and petroglyphs.


If you still think ( like I did) that the desert is just sand dunes, you must come and discover what the desert here is all about.

It is teeming with wildlife and plantlife. Plan to arrive when the desert is in bloom (April - May) and you will be in awe of the beauty around you. It was so much fun for us to see the awesome Saguaro cacti, as our only experience with them was watching Roadrunner/Bugs Bunny cartoons as a kids.

    What's funny is that I told him on special occasions, it wasn't cats but hamsters. Needless to say, the relationship ended very quick! =)

    Lovely pics, Helen. I lived in Tucson for 2 winters and really miss it. I should be retired and living there but ended up near London. I smiled a lot looking at Sedona. :-)

    Thanks, Helen. I saved several of your tips including the soft ice cream one. That will be important if we go there with Nick.
