N. Rim Grand Canyon.JPG 62k N. Rim Grand Canyon is much less crowded than the South Rim and equally interesting. You will miss seeing the historic El Tovar Hotel and the Grand Canyon Railroad, but life's a trade off. There are also fewer places from which one can see the Colorado River.
Sunset.JPG 35k Grand Canyon Sunset tops off a nice day of hiking and picture taking. This shot is taken near the lodge.
Saguaro Cactus 58k Saguaro Cactus can be found scattered around Southern Arizona in the Sonoran Desert. They can live to be 200 years old. Because this one is tall and has "arms", it is probably over a 100 years old. Saguaros take on a personality of their own. This one is in Saguaro NP near Tucson. The park is split into areas on the East and West side of Tucson. The 115°F temperatures slowed the hiking down some, but it is a dry heat.
Casa Grande.JPG 54k Casa Grande was home to the Hohokam Indians. The evidence shows that this structure could have been the central stucture of an adobe "fort". The park is a National Monument
Montezuma Castle.JPG 61k Montezuma Castle was built by Sinagua Indian farmers in the early 12th century. It is 5 stories high and contains 20 rooms. It was mistakenly thought to be Aztecan by early settlers who gave it the name.
