Default South West Vacation

Julie and I headed to Phoenix to see my son and to catch a few sights along the way. We used a GPS (that was interesting) and took the scenic routes.

These are just a few, if you want to see more, they will be on my Flickr page, and thats just a few also

Looks like a really nice trip. I love snow at the canyon. We'll be in AZ and MT next week.

Great pics! My wife and I absolutely love the SW and go there as often as we can. The one pic of the mesa reminded me of a time we camped in Utah and didn't get there till after dark and it was completely pitch black in this one spot on the horizon. When we woke up the next morning it was because we were camped at the foot of a mesa that blocked half the stars.

I also love the pic of the truck with the canyon in the background.

Thanks guys, it was a ride to remember

Todd, we're jealous, sort of, I was the lucky one who was driving through Wolf Creek Pass Colorado at 10,800 ft above sea level, and the roads were snow covered. Needless to say the trucks were putting chains on and I had the Exlorer in 4x4, going down the moutain.... (I think I saw most of it from the front window as we slid and careened down the mountain backwards,, ) kidding,, mostly..

Take all you want Joker, if you need more, you know where they are, and I can put more up. I take pics of things that move, don't move, just about anything...several times

Hey Ed, if you go soon, pick me up on the way through..we decided we want to live somewhere out there.

@ Patella, We love it too, I think we are going back next year, just different places.

Nice. I was up there at Desert View on the 8th. I have a project under construction there.

This was the weather condition at the end of our site meeting, lol


I also stopped to check out the Little Colorado River Gorge east of the Grand Canyon.



There are no guardrails in nature.


I never try to bring my scalers out there due to airport security but always look around and see all the great places to run them.

That's why I love living in Arizona. I can take the heat for a month or two when I know I can see sights like that within 2 hours of my house. I camp in the Sedona area, as well as the Mogollon rim(mogy-on for you fer-in-ers ). I'll be taking the mini Rover with me this year, should have some nice action shots.

One of my favourite regions. My buddy worked in Tempe right out of school and we spent a few weeks there every year. Looks like you had a great trip!
