Recently I traveled to Arizona with family to visit Larry's Dad. I'm not going to lie (mostly because I think that Larry already knew...) I was dreading the heat. I had never been to the American southwest, and I did not know how the heat would affect me. All of this worry and I had forgotten that I had been to Texas a few times, and I had also been in the Sahara desert...the mother of all deserts. I actually enjoyed the heat (after one initial day of misery). The key for me was to stay hydrated - and by hydrated I mean that I was drinking about a half to full gallon of water each day.
We took the Grand Canyon Railway train to see the Grand canyon, visited Sedona, Jerome, and Tubac; saw the San Xavier del Bac mission and did a little hiking in Sabino Canyon. Take a look at my shutterfly site, or facebook page for more photos.
