The state of Arizona features a mixture of big cities like Phoenix and Tucson along with a number of small towns filled with character. Heck, there are even quite a few ghost towns and towns that claim to have ghosts. I’ve embedded a few Arizona pictures below and you’ll have to read this post on the Web site to see the embedded versions. If you see a picture you like, go ahead and click the Like button.
Of the smaller towns, Sedona is one of the most well-known because it is surrounded by a number of beautiful red rock formations. Many of these same rocks are found a little farther north in the Grand Canyon. On a recent visit to Sedona, I snapped the picture below on my phone. It gives you an idea of the red rocks but unfortunately it isn’t the greatest shot. The rocks are much more impressive in person.
Sedona has quite a few art galleries and some even say that aliens have made a few stops there over the years. Definitely put it on a list of places to visit if you come to Arizona. Just down the road is Cottonwood and I found one of the signs in their “Old Town” area to be very interesting.
The huge sign looks very vintage, but it really isn’t that old. Thanks to the addition of advertising for a law firm, the sign was added and probably didn’t have as big of a cost to the local merchants (if any cost).
One area of beauty that can be found all over Arizona are the sunsets. The shot below was captured just outside the front door of our office. With the sun setting behind the tree, it almost looks as if the tree might be on fire.
Even when trees die in the desert, they can be very scenic. The dead mesquite tree below is still beautiful even though it will no longer bloom or grow.
I know some of you are suffering from really awful weather right now. So you might accuse me of rubbing it in to tell you that we’ve had highs around 80 degrees for the last week and lots of sunshine. Guess that’s why the pitchers and catchers of a number of Major League Baseball teams will report for their first day of work today in ballparks around Arizona.
