Being able to escape the gloomy weather of the PNW and head south was great. I stayed in Phoenix for a week and also had a day to travel north and see a little of Sedona. The landscape of the desert amazes me especially the cacti thats found everywhere. I was able to take a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West which was very impressive. (Red seems to be his favorite color). I also got to see the Desert Botanical Garden near Papago Park and really enjoyed seeing all the different cacti and agave plants. If I had more time I would've gone on a few hikes. Maybe next time.
