Arizona Travel Pics

The Arizona desert is so harsh I would never choose to live there, though many do and quite happily, thank you very much.

I have to admit the landscape is awfully spectacular, though.

And they have some great ghost towns.

My 3x great-grandfather, Elijah Perry, died in the Arizona desert. He was serving in the Army during the Civil War and ended up there. The family story was that he died from a poisoned arrow. It took many years, but I finally found him…and the real cause of death: scurvy. Not as romantic as an arrow wound maybe, but it’s nice to learn the truth.

True, I would never live here. But it is a special place to visit.
