Jim and Larra’s adventures in Arizona

Our Time Apart

Post Image

Jim: To bring you up-to-date, Larra and I were together on her trips to Maui for 10 days, then 15, then 20. We’ve had a total of forty days together, plus ten months of phone calls and lots and lots of email, and Facebook posts. Forty days together. I’ll admit that I hadn’t thought this […]

Phoenix Farewells

Post Image

Mar. 2, 2016 – After spending the night in a motel north of Phoenix, we got up fresh this morning, had a leisurely breakfast at the pancake house, let the GPS take us back to the car rental, took the shuttle to the Phoenix airport, and had time for lunch together before I boarded my […]

Sights of Sedona & Cliff Castle Casino

Post Image

After a wonderful evening at Oak Creek Terrace, Larra and I spent a leisurely morning exploring Sedona. Later we headed south towards Phoenix, stopping for lunch at the Cliff Castle Casino. I was last in Sedona in ’08 for Happy Oasis’ Raw Spirit Fest. Since then, they’ve put all of their utility wires underground, and […]

Oak Creek Canyon

Post Image

As we traveled south towards Phoenix, we had the GPS set for shortest distance, which usually takes us on some pretty scenic routes. This afternoon Larra and I weren’t disappointed. South of Flagstaff the GPS had us turn off the Interstate, and after a pleasant drive through a community of elegant hobby ranches, we found […]

The Painted Desert

Post Image

Feb. 29, 2016 – So we exited Grand Canyon National Park by the East entrance, and what do we behold almost immediately? We find ourselves descending into the Navajo Nation Reservation and the Painted Desert. Wow!

Grand Canyon NP – East

Post Image

Continuing on through the eastern part of Grand Canyon NP. We met people from all over the world by using the creative line, “Will you take our picture?”     Remember this mountain range, the San Francisco peaks. We’ll be driving through it this afternoon. You’ll find this plaque and view in the old Tusayan […]

Grand Canyon NP – West

Post Image

Day two at Grand Canyon NP. We got up early this morning, took some photos of the sculptures, big rocks, old cars and other interesting stuff at the Grand Canyon Inn, then back to the Grand Canyon to see what it looks like in the morning. We pulled up to a different entrance kiosk, and […]

High Plains Desert

Post Image

Feb. 29. 2016 – Not realizing how much the area outside of the Grand Canyon park gates had grown, yesterday afternoon, on the way to Grand Canyon National Park, we stopped in Valle and got a room at the Grand Canyon Inn. At one time this was the closest hotel to the park. After check-in […]

A Grand Canyon Afternoon

Post Image

We’re there! The Grand Canyon! Larra’s dream trip! Because we’re coming back tomorrow, this afternoon we simply visited Mather Point, and drove through the park village. We took in the overview, and plotted our strategies for tomorrow. At 8,000 ft. Above Sea Level, neither Larra nor myself were up to doing much walking. Stopping and […]

The Universe Knows

Post Image

The Universe knows the perfect timing for all those things you want… and will find, through the crack of least resistance, the best way to deliver it to you. – Abraham I’ve wanted to see the Grand Canyon for years. A few short months after I met Jim, I’m here! Wow! Talk about manifesting!

Traveling in Synchronicity

Post Image

Jim: Route 66 ran back into US-40 at Slegman, then we turned off onto AZ-64 at the Kabab National Forest, and headed up through Valle to Grand Canyon National Park. All of this area is the Coconina Plateau, as you’ll see on the map, below. As we drove along I realized that the Zane Gray […]

Stepping Back in Time

Post Image

After another long, straight stretch of highway, we came out in Seligman, AZ. This town was a complete surprise to me; I’d not heard of it before. The town was decorated and festooned to celebrate the heyday of the great Route 66, before Interstate 40 opened. Apparently it’s very popular with European tourists, many of […]

Route 66

Post Image

Driving east out of Kingman, AZ, we took the longer, scenic route through the desert and along historic Route 66. It was easy to have your speed creep up on the long, straight stretches. We got a kick out of the Burma Shave road signs that reminded us to watch how fast we were going. […]

The Hoor House

Post Image

Near Kingman, Arizona. A couple of hours after we left the London Bridge this morning I pulled off of I-40 onto the old US-66 – the famous Route 66. When we pulled off of the Interstate, Larra asked me to stop at the gas station so she could use the bathroom. While I waited in […]

London Bridge Reborn

Post Image

Jim: In 1968 the London Bridge, opened in 1831, was torn down to make way for a new version. The 19th century bridge was sold to a property developer and moved to Lake Havasau, Arizona, where it was used to clad a steel bridge, built to look like the 19th century London Bridge. When asked […]

Quartzite & the Arizona Desert

Post Image

After a great breakfast and enjoyable morning in Los Algodones we got in the car and headed up the western border of Arizona to Quartzite. Photos by Larra because Jim wouldn’t stop; he wanted to reach the London Bridge before dark. Here’s some traveling and background music while you browse the photo collection and share […]

Where’s My Camera?

When we got up this morning I asked Jim, “Do you know where my camera is?” He handed me this, and said, “I made you a new one. It only cost me $2.” It was made from two $1 bills. I think he bought it in Mexico when my back was turned. Sigh…

Los Algodones, Baja, Mexico

Post Image

Jim: Thursday morning we drove the ten miles from Yuma to the Mexico border crossing. We parked at the Indian Reservation parking lot ($6) and walked across the border. Everybody’s welcome! No ID required if you’re on foot. Just walk on through. Passport recommended to get back into the US, though. We found the dentist’s […]

Phoenix, Gila Bend & Yuma, Arizona

Post Image

Larra and I flew into Phoenix, rented a car, and drove down to Yuma. On the way we passed through Gila Bend, and had a wonderful vegetarian lunch at the Space Age Restaurant, the only place we could find in town that wasn’t a fast food franchise. Space Age Lodge & Restaurant: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/76 While driving […]

Let’s Go Have an Adventure!

Post Image

After ten days in Vancouver I had to dry out and warm up. I convinced Larra to go to Mexico with me, so I could get my teeth fixed. I also promised to show her Arizona. (Above: Larra, Jim, and you, Constant Reader.) Photo Credit: Unknown. I’ve seen it floating around Facebook for years. Please […]
