Arizona on My Mind: in Pictures

A small section of Arizona Pictures randomly thrown together.  Great Follow up to yesterday's post: http://bagdaddy.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/arizona-on-my-mind.html

The story of my Arizona Life

Running the Lost Dutchman Marathon in Apache Junction, AZ.

Best sunsets in the world in Arizona.  Although Australia has some stunners.
One of many cool abandoned early 1900s mines in Arizona.  This one  is on the way to Wabayuma Peak, a little known wilderness in the northwest corner of the state.  

Life below the Rim in the Grand Canyon.  This was a much needed rest stop during my 110 mile solo trip self dubbed the Grand Canyon Eastern Loop.  

Bored (board) Hiking at Coors Lake near Bagadad.

Coors Lake and Lawler Peak.  Bagdad Staples.  

Nankoweap ruins in the bottom of the grand canyon.  very difficult 14 mile hike in (28 return) to see the ruins unless you have a boat.

Hiking off trail along the Colorado River on the Floor of the Grand canyon during my 7 day journey.  

Skinny Dipping in Burro Creek near Bagdad.  Two nights before the Las Vegas Marathon to ice the legs

Iconic Havasu Falls on the Hopi Rez.

Escudida Mountain Trail in the seldom talked about White Mountains in Eastern Arizona.
