These are Aspen trees up from Lockett Meadow in Flagstaff. Do you know that aspens have a particular smell when they turn yellow like this? Wonderful!
Meteor Crater: A huge hunk of space debris smashed into the earth here near Winslow, AZ about 50,000 years ago. This is one of the best preserved craters due to the dry climate.
This has got to be one of my favorite pictures ever taken in Arizona! Sedona is a great place to go to get out of the summer heat. This is Courthouse Butte with a nice storm behind it. You will see this picture all over my blog and button. I just love it.
This is Montezuma's Castle that can be seen driving from Phoenix to Flagstaff. It is a Sinagua cliff dwelling that is actually a national monument.
This scene also graces my blog. It is a photo taken by my husband of Saguaro National Park outside of Tucson. It is a wonderful place to go at sunset. Those are metamorphic rocks in the foreground.
This is one of my favorite parks in Arizona. Most people do not know that we have volcanoes here! This picture was taken at the cinder cones at Sunset Crater National Monument. A great place to visit near Flagstaff.
I will end near Phoenix with a picture taken in the White Tank Mountains. These rocks show pictographs that could approach 10,000 years old.
Hope you enjoyed some of these pictures from around the state. It is truly a varied place with a lot of great outdoor adventure.
