Cottonwood Arizona, in the Verde Valley, was one of the stops on our spring road-trip. Located about 17 miles southwest of Sedona, Cottonwood is an excellent place to stay for access to Sedona, Prescott, Jerome and the ancient ruins of the Verde Valley. There are three ruin sites in the Verde Valley that are National Monuments. They are Montezuma Castle, Montezuma Well, and Tuzigoot. These sites were inhabited by the Southern Sinagua between 1000 and 1400. The Southern Sinagua were farmers, and the Verde Valley's water and soil gave them what they needed to thrive. These ancient farmers grew corn, beans, squash, and cotton in fields irrigated with canals. Their homes were a combination of pueblos and cliff dwellings, depending on the location.

This week's blog post: The title of this blog reflects the natural markers of this National Park. Driving on I-40 in northeastern Arizona, you see a landscape of high desert with subtle tones of gray-green and brown desert foliage. You don't see high mountains, tall trees, deep canyons, massive dunes, or huge signs letting you know you're approaching a national park. See this week's blog post => jhp.ph/2KlXX9E .

Each year during the winter months, usually in January, we head to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico to get away for a winter break. The Northern California's weather is never cold, but it is much warmer in Mexico then. We stay at the Royal Solaris Los Cabos, an all-inclusive resort in San Jose del Cabo. On the coast of the Sea of Cortez. One of the many things that I enjoy is bird watching at Estero San José.
