The blooms are just beginning to bud at The Arboretum at Flagstaff. In just a few weeks, it’ll be a great side trip to take on your way to the Grand Canyon. The former residence of now deceased Frances McAllister (who first came to Flagstaff by train in the 1930s and moved here permanently in 1967, after her husband, John Vickers McAllister, died), the gardens and buildings share what she learned about gardening at 7,000 feet elevation.

I was 10 the last time I visited Arcosanti, architect and artist Paolo Soleri’s eco-friendly community just off I-17 near Cordes Junction. I can’t say it’s changed much except it seems quieter–then again, I was with my family this time, not 60 plus screaming fourth graders. The students living here still make bronze and ceramic bells, they still grow much of their own fruits and vegetables, and they still envision a world where humans make the most of their natural surroundings.

“I can’t go on my own?” This is one of those phrases that are beginning to rile me. You can, you would just rather not.

Gold brought the people to Bairnsdale but it was the beauty of this locale that kept them here.

As the entrance to the more rugged territory of rivers, mountains, and lakes it works well to use as a base and to take day trips to the attractions and sights you wish to see.
