A little of both BK. Also, the friends we visited in Arizona had a few places planned for us to see.
You're welcome Laura and Janet.

You have found some very interesting sites to visit during your trip Lyndee. Did you research the areas for all these attractions and plan these stops or did you happen to find them along the way during your road trip?

Thank you everyone. This is a beautiful park and well worth a visit if you're ever in the Phoenix area. It's in a beautiful part of the city and it is free.

A tribute to those individuals, organizations and events. Nicely done with the carving of the names/events and the shadows that they make. Thank you, Lyndee.
