Exploring Arizona: Williams and Wildlife Zoo/Aquarium

Have tickets to the Antiques Roadshow in Phoenix this weekend... taking Indian pottery, a lamp from the 1890's, some Currier & Ives prints (not valuable, but I want to learn how to tell how old prints are... and DH and I are treating ourselves to a weekend at a ritzy hotel for our anniversary... also seeing my dear brother while we're in the Big City (LOL).

Here are some pics from a recent excursion through the back country to Williams, AZ (Gateway to the Grand Canyon) (if you go, be sure to visit American Flyer Coffee Co. -- DELICIOUS coffee and really nice people!! ) and pics from a trip yesterday with Tom Terrific to the Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium (Note to self: do not go to Phoenix for outdoor activities in July... 115 degrees... oh yeah -- it's a dry heat @ 8% humidity LOL)

you could say that...

[bad] weather on the red rocks...

came around a bend and this old boy was trotting along

where the deer & the [pronghorn] antelope play...

oh beautiful! for spacious skies

part of the Perkins Ranch

open range state... no fence between me & him... (not Perkins cattle btw)

tracked this dog across a wide open field...

who then sat and howled at us like a wolf!!
