Sedona and Phoenix

After leaving Flagstaff, we drove a scenic route down toward Sedona. We saw some gorgeous scenery. Sedona is a beautiful place, located in a canyon surrounded by huge red rock formations. A charming, artsy community high enough to have moderate weather but not high enough to be overly cold. (So they say)

We drove through Phoenix, stopping at the Capitol. I certainly don't want to offend any Arizonians (Arizonites?) but their capitol doesn't compare to any that we have seen, especially West Virginia's. The original building is now only for show and they do their governing in a building that looks like a 60's office building.

We are in Tucson tonight, planning to go to the Saguaro National Park tomorrow. It's named after the cacti you see in the Roadrunner cartoons and lots of westerns. You know exactly what I'm talking about, don't you? We just have to watch out for rattlesnakes and stinging insects (such as scorpions) that the signs keep warning us about.
