My Amazing Time In Arizona

It’s been awhile since my last time I was in the southern part of the U.S. I recently travelled down to Texas and then to Arizona.

Being a traveler is not easy, but definitely the best thing to do in your life. Thinking about Arizona you can see and do more things that you can imagine.
From road trips and outdoor thrills to rejuvenating resorts and unique local cuisine, Arizona teems with exciting travel adventures. Experience the exhilarating scenery, including the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon National Park and the Sonoran Desert.. Averaging more than 325 days of sunshine a year, you can always plan on perfect weather.
No doubt, there’s a big reason why the snowbirds come to the desert regions of Arizona in the winter: the peak Arizona travel season lasts from November to March—at least in the Phoenix and Tucson areas, when temperatures are warm but not hot. Winter, however, is chilly at the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Flagstaff, which sit at higher elevations and even get snow. Spring and fall are good times to visit Arizona in general, though, when temperatures stay fairly mild, and in spring you’ll have a good chance of seeing desert wildflowers.
There is Scottsdale which is best experienced by way of the outdoors, so be sure to pack your athletic gear. If you love hiking, head to Camelback Mountain for a challenging workout that rewards with amazing views from the top. You’l find the core of Scottsdale’s cultural offerings. No matter how much you read about the Grand Canyon or how many photographs you’ve seen, nothing really prepares you for the sight of it. One of the world’s seven natural wonders, it’s so startlingly familiar and iconic you can’t take your eyes off it. The canyon’s immensity, the sheer intensity of light and shadow at sunrise or sunset, even its very age, scream for superlatives. You could spend the rest of your life hiking the Grand Canyon and never cover all the trails. Bright Angel Trail is the most famous, but it’s tough: with an elevation change of more than 5,000 feet, don’t try to hike to the Colorado River and back in one day. What I like about the Colorado River is that it extends all the way to Austin, TX which is one of my favorite cities in Texas. Last time I was over there was when I was visiting a friend in San Antonio who is an asphalt contractor and who showed me some of the construction sites where they were getting some concrete and asphalt work done. The trails that they were rebuilding looked amazing.

Other outstanding choices are the South Kaibab Trail and the Hermit Trail.
Frank Lloyd Wright was so ahead of his time that Taliesin West, his breathtaking residence and studio out in the desert, is as fascinating and relevant today as it was when he and his apprentices built it – by hand! – back in 1937.
This is not a “look, don’t touch” kind of place. In fact, you’re encouraged to sit down wherever there’s a chair and make yourself at home. The only place you’re asked not to take photos is in the working studio of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, where students are continuing his legacy.
The Arizona landscape has inspired hundreds of artists over the years, so it’s no surprise that art abounds throughout the state.
Then Sedona his central Arizona city is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Regularly described as one of the most beautiful places in America, Sedona not only dazzles with its famous red rocks and hiking trails ,but also with its energy vortexes. These unique rock formations are said to emit energy from the earth, and it’s an experience you have to feel for yourself to believe.
