Gorgeous Arizona

This is the first time that I have participated in Outdoor Wednesday but as our time draws to a close here in Arizona I realized that there are a few sites we had yet to visit. So this past weekend hubby, kids and I decided to take a road trip. We visited Montezuma's Castle, Meteor Crater, Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest.  I have also added a couple more pictures of beautiful landscape that we saw along the drive.  Arizona is a gorgeous state with such a diverse landscape and climate.  I hope you all enjoy the pictures.

As always you can click on any picture to enlarge.

What fabulous photos! I agree with you about the beauty of Arizona. The first time I visited my cousin out there I was not sure what to expect and ended up being in awe of the unique beauty of it. Glad you joined us today!
