ARIZONA

Photo Gallery A little bit about this place...
Sonora Desert Museum

Link to the museum's website: Sonora Desert Museum
About 85% of the Desert Museum is outdoors. Temperatures in the desert from May through September can exceed 100°F. During these months, plan your visit to avoid the heat of the day. The early morning hours are best for viewing the animals, many of whom are nocturnal or estivate during the day. On Saturdays (Memorial Day through Labor Day) either visit in the mornings or in the evenings for Cool Summer Nights activities.

Heart Attack Grill

The Heart Attack Grill has only one location in Las Vegas.
Here is their address:450 Fremont Street #130, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Website (a sample of their menu)

The Heart Attack Grill menu consists of four burger varieties based on number of half-pound patties: the "Single Bypass Burger", the "Double Bypass Burger", the "Triple Bypass Burger", and the "Quadruple Bypass Burger". Each of the burgers can be augmented with "unadulterated" (not drained of the grease from cooking) bacon slices in quantities of five slices per patty, thus five slices of bacon on the Single Bypass, ten slices on the Double Bypass, 15 slices on the Triple Bypass, and 20 slices of bacon on the Quadruple Bypass Burger and so-on. All burgers are served, per patty, with a slice of American cheese, red onion, sliced tomato, and Heart Attack Grill's own unique special sauce.

The only available side item is "Flatliner Fries", fresh French-cut potatoes deep fried in pure lard. Heart Attack Grill also offers "Butter-fat Shakes" in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavors.

Hiking Bright Angel Trail
Here's a short description of the Bright Angel Trail in Grand Canyon. I can tell you from experience, that this trail is very steep. Not for beginners and make sure you wear the right kind of shoes and bring lots of water. Summer time is not the time to hike here.

(Steep) The Bright Angel Trail begins just west of Bright Angel Lodge and offers day hikes that range in distance up to 12 miles (round trip). Some shade. Seasonal water subject to pipeline breaks. Check at the Visitor Center or Backcountry Information Center for water status. Upper portion of the trail may be extremely icy in winter or early spring. Grand Canyon Hiking Trails
Jerome - A real western town
Jerome is a true western mining town. Visit the saloons, jail and toss a coin where the hotel used to sit! A little history from the Chamber of Commerce:

Jerome Today: After the mines closed in 1953 and “King Copper” left town, the population went from a peak of 15,000 in the 1920s to a low of 50 people. The Jerome Historical Society guarded the buildings against vandalism and the elements, the Douglas Mansion became a State Park in 1965, and Jerome became a National Historic Landmark in 1976.

Oatman

Oatman is full of mining history with burros running wild and going to town daily for a little food. The miners let them loose back in the day when the town was finished up.
Oatman was named in honor of Olive Oatman, who as a young girl, was kidnapped by an Apache tribe, sold to Mojave Indians and later rescued in a trade in 1857 near the current site of the town. Oatman was served by a narrow gauge rail line between 1903 and 1905 that ran 17 miles to the Colorado River near Needles, California. Reference Oatman website

Sedona


The desert of Sedona is breathtaking. I really never appreciated the beauty of the desert until I visited Sedona. The red rocks and landscape are truly a work of art. Here's a little history on Sedona: Geologically, the history of Sedona began about 500 millions years ago. Over a period of 300 million years, the land was alternately ocean bottom and coastal plain. Sedimentary layers of sandstone formed. Between 200 and 65 million years ago, dinosaurs roamed the land. From 65 to 20 million years ago, there were uplifts in southern Arizona and down faulting and wind erosion in northern Arizona. From 20 to 12 million years ago, volcanic activity caused the Verde Valley to down fault into a deep basin with lakebeds, creating the Mogollon Rim. About 3 million years ago, the Colorado Plateau uplifted. Since then, erosion by wind, rain and snowmelt has created Oak Creek Canyon and exposed the layers of sediment (Schnebly Hill Formation sandstone) to form the spectacular red rock formations we now see in Sedona.
