Have an Eegee's Flavor of the Month with your fajitas, with maybe some cactus candy for a desert-y dessert.  Stroll through the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, take in a gunfight at Old Tucson, and head up to Phoenix for a visit to the Heard Museum and, if you're a fan of the opposing team, an Arizona Diamondbacks game. (Sorry, but they're terrible this year.) Continue north to Flagstaff, and head east on I-40 / Route 66 to check out whether Winslow, Arizona has such a fine sight to see.  Take in the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert, discover the little-known wonder of the Little Painted Desert, visit First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation, and double back for a trip to the Grand Canyon.  You'll want to be there to watch the sun rise.

Don't have time for all that?  Oh, well, just read my journal, then.  I'll get to all those places eventually.
