Just got back from a week exploring Arizona. We spent the first of the week in the Sedona, I did a little hiking and checking out the art galleries. The end of the week was spent in the Tucson area. Tuscon was a busy place with the huge match play golf tournament going on and the big annual rodeo. I didn't realize either was going on until we arrived and got into the traffic. I wish I had planned on attending both, I'm sure it would have been fun to photograph pro golf and rodeo.......maybe next year. We checked out some of the cactus forests and rode to Mt. Lemon the top of a 9,000 foot mountain that has unbelieveable views. The best part of the week was the south rim of the Grand Canyon, I don't know what I expected but it was nothing like I thought it would be. I stopped at as many overlooks as I could and everytime I thought that it just couldn't get anymore beautiful the next stop would be even more spectacular. It snowed and was very cold so not alot of people were out and around, but the bad weather made for some real nice shots. I'm definitely going to go back again when I can spend more time and do some hiking into the canyon.
