A Love Letter to Arizona

I had been to the Arizona a few times before – short, 2-3-day visits with friends filled mostly with hanging out at their homes and the occasional meal in a tasty restaurant. But I really got to experience and appreciate the absolute beauty of the state during my nearly one month stay in November 2019 after embarking upon my full-time life on the road.

From mountain vistas to museums, spiritual centers, historic sites, gastronomic adventures, and lots of little wonderful things in between, I relished in it all.


Phoenix

Phoenix may be known for its great weather, luxury resorts, fantastic golf, relaxing spas, and Spring Training camps for many of the Major League Baseball clubs and their fans, but there is much more here than meets the eye.

Situated in the heart of the Sonoran Desert and nicknamed “The Valley of the Sun”—the city attracts well over 12 million visitors each year from all walks of life from all over the world.

Scottsdale

Although known by many as an expansive Greater Phoenix Area suburb with great shopping and restaurants, there is much more to Scottsdale than meets the eye.

One of the most attractive aspects is that although it has grown to over 250,000 denizens, it has still retained a charming, small-town flavor and flair with many of the offerings of “the big city.”

Sedona

Beautiful. Magical. Majestic. Spiritual. These are just a few words to describe Sedona.

Located approximately 30 miles from Flagstaff, 113 miles from Phoenix, 114 miles from the Grand Canyon, and 278 miles from Las Vegas, Sedona is often referred to as “One of the Most Beautiful Places in America.” And there are numerous ways and places to explore its majestic beauty everywhere you look.

Still on my Arizona “must see” list are Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, and a lot of wonderful spots further afield.


I’ll see you on the road!
