First trip to AZ

So I just got back from a trip to AZ yesterday. The unfortunate part is I didn't have any time to fish. I'll be back again and will make sure that's in the schedule. We flew into Phoenix on Thursday and drove about an hour to a place called Circle City where my wife was born and lived until she was 9. Met a few neighbors that still live there 25 years later now and went into Wickenburg to eat at Anitas. Man your salsa is good down there! We then headed up to Sedona where my wife's good fried from high school and college was getting married.
Went to the Grand Canyon Friday and did the typical tourist look outs and hiked about 1.5 miles down. We probably would have went further but everyone looked half dead walking back up and we didn't want to overdo it.
Saturday was the wedding but it wasn't until 6 so we hit sugarloaf and the coffee pot for a few hours. Nice easy hike with next to no one else around. Beautiful wedding at the ridge at sedona golf resort that night. Sunday we hit bell rock and then drove closer to Phoenix to stay with some other family friends to make the drive to the airport the next day a little easier.

Overall it was just beautiful. Pennsylvania is gorgeous in it's own way and so is AZ. The desert, rock formations, sunsets, etc were really something I've never seen before. We really lucked out with the weather and it wasn't hot pretty much the whole trip. Stepped out of the airport back in Pittsburgh (city of champions I might add!) and you could cut the humidity with a knife it was so thick. We really enjoyed our stay for many reasons; scenery was great, food was good, and we left our 4 kids back at home so it was a perfect trip for us. I can't wait to get back and this time the rod will see the water.
