Week of Thanks – Flagstaff and Arizona

At one point in my life I lived in Flagstaff Arizona.  This is a period in my life that I am thankful for, because it allowed me to grow, not only as a photographer, but more importantly as a person.  I learned some important things about myself, developed at least some of my “land ethic” my “people ethic”, and made some very important friendships.

Northern Arizona is a land of contrasts.  From the great wealth of many in the Sedona area to the extreme poverty of the Rez, it has some of the greatest people in the world.  The same goes for the environment of Northern Arizona.  Most who’ve never been to the region naturally assume that it is completely desert.  While portions certainly are others are forested mountains.  Yet more contrasts in our lives to be thankful for.

The San Francisco Peaks, highest mountains in Arizona, loom over the road from Flagstaff to the Lowell Observatory. The road is framed by pines and aspens giving one the impression that rather then a city of 70000 one is out in the country. The San Francisco Peaks are sacred mountains for the Hopi, Navajo, and several other tribes in Arizona.

By the way, Friday the 23rd  of November, I’ll be sending five discount coupons out to lucky followers of this blog.  So tell your friends.  Or, alternatively, to be sure you have a better chance to get one of the coupons, don’t 😛  More details Tuesday on the coupons.
