Phoenix, Arizona

Cameron, Arizona, where we spent the night. Wonderful, reasonably priced accomodations, with a superior gift shop, restaurant, and convenience store.

The LDS Chapel in Cameron is small but nice.
The Grand Canyon is breath taking always. But this time of year is special. Cool, but nice, clear and greening, small crowds and plenty of peace and majesty.

I prefer the North Rim for visiting, but the South Rim has so many wonderful lookouts and grand vistas. It is clear that if you want to avoid the crowds, hit the North Rim.
Near Flagstaff, as we headed down Oak Creek Canyon we found a family out building a snowman in the fast melting snow.

Sedona was so beautiful, and congested, and beautiful, and under construction, and commercial, and beautiful. We ate at Wildflower Breads and enjoyed the artisan breads and great food.

The Mesa Temple was more imposing than we expected. Very beautiful with wonderful grounds. The tangerines were ripe on the trees.
We drove to Tucson and spent the night.
