John Wayne and the Desert
by H Milan Winkelhock - 4 years ago
The classic American desert state that is featured in so many shows and movies… most know for the large amount of Hispanics, retired people and the crazy heat. Living in a neighboring state I have spent quite a bit of time in Arizona and it actually has a lot to offer if you scratch below the surface. There is of course the Grand Canyon in the north, one of the most visited attractions in the country, but my favorite is definitely the Page area and monument valet. Through these ancient and sacred rock formations in the desert the old John Wayne movies come to life and you feel like you are on a different planet. If you have the possibility, try to charter an aircraft and see it from above while zigzagging between the formations.
