    Just wait until October!
    I don't know about Phx, but further south, we've had a very nice monsoon season, so the place might look a little greener than it should for the summer.
    Glad you finally made it!

    Well, bummer! I'm glad you liked it. Out of curiosity, what drew you to Phoenix? Were you there for any good monsoons?

    Personally, the thought of a rainy, drizzly England sounds wonderful. I've often wanted a lovely vacation there!

    I just peaked at your Journal. What a nightmare flying at that particular time. Did the airlines accomadate the passangers with extra liquids?

    DH and both DD's decided on AZ but i am glad they di.
    We were there during a few storms for us the rain was harder and much more lightning but thought they were fantastic to watch.
    Will hopefully live out there early 2007.
    No liquids what so ever even took my anti sickness tablets of me, but on the internal US flights and US-UK flights much more relaxed but still no liquids.

    We visited AZ two years ago for vacation and to visit Banner as part of our immigration process.

    We drove from Vegas to Phoenix via Flagstaff and back to Vegas via the I60. Differing scenery was fantastic.

    I have family that has lived in the Bullhead City, AZ area along the Colorado River for many, many years.

    I was born and raised in southern California and now live in St. Louis, MO, which is also a very lovely area of the US, but there truly is something magnificent about AZ. I love when I get a chance to go back to visit!

    Hey madwife have been rushing around like headless chickens getting all our police checks etc requested feel like we have spent the last 72 hrs filing in forms and camped outside the post office. I would also pass on the hiking but would definitely go for the cocktails and toast the sunset.
