BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
Arizona Through The Viewfinder

Spent the first half of the day in the kitchen making a new supply of chicken stock for the freezer and then toddled across the street to Trader Joe's for a quick shopping trip. I love their Maple Leaf cookies, and besides that I was having a few serious cravings - the kind that if you don't get sated then you're losing sleep and ending up really grumpy. Conveniently Damien only wanted leftovers from last night for his dinner tonight, so I get to indulge my cravings: sourdough bread, a wedge of room temperature blue cheese, a Granny Smith apple, and some herbed olive oil to dip my bread in.

Here are some new photo treatments, hope you enjoy!

Native American cave drawings - they're extraordinary.

Ahhhh... Monument Valley. Well, welcome to the Grand Canyon state! Here in AZ, there's lots of road trip possibilities, whether you like hiking, cultural diversity, or the open vastness of the southwest. Canyon de Chelly (pronounced "Canyon de Shay") is amazing and you should definitely see it (as well as the standard recommendations). A trip out to the Hopi reservation is a lot of fun (and a lot of driving), but the trip takes you along old Route 66, through Winslow, and across some Navajo lands. You're also not too far from the VLA and Santa Fe, NM.

I encourage you to visit Tucson, if only to get away from the political redness of Maricopa County, but also because we have the Saguaro National Parks. Of course, if you're in the area, I'd be honored if you let me know - 1st round is on me. :)

Oh! And definitely try frybread. And eat at restaurants where the menu isn't in English. :)

I look forward to many weekend excursions away in coming months while the weather is still nice.

Also, let me know if you ever get up here to Phoenix!
