Yup...that's where I live, and have lived for several years.
I am more of a NW Gal, but the mountains in Arizona are beautiful.
When one thinks of Arizona, they think of flat, dry desert...or the Grand Canyon.
But many don't think of the mountains. It struck me yesterday, as we were heading home, that in most places of Arizona, you are surrounded by mountains! As a matter of fact, we have one in our back yard!
There is different type of beauty here, not forests of pines and firs, but the majestic Saguaro and the spindly Ocotillo cactus.
