I came from Oregon. I was used to trees and water and such everywhere. Then I went there, at first I was horrified. It's kind of special though, after a while you start to love the red rocks and see beauty where you once saw horror.
Over the past several years I've taken a trip out to Arizona. I've visited Phoenix, Tuscon, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Page and Sedona. All of it is beautiful and so different from what's here on the East Coast. I'm looking forward to another visit in the future.
