February in Arizona, Having survived the mayhem of Christmas and the endless barrage of holiday music that started at Thanksgiving and getting past the New Years hangover it was time to get outta Dodge. Gloomy northeast February seemed perfect.

Arizona is rich in scenery and surprise for the visitor. A week is my recommended amount of time to explore some of what Arizona has to delight you.

A Visit with Jim Swedberg , It didn’t take long for the need to travel to start my feet to itching for the road. I’ve only been back from Arizona for 3 weeks and already the traffic, tailgaters and piles of roadside litter being exposed by the melting snow has pushed me to be out and about.

So I gather up my traveling gear and often fellow traveler John Ryan and head for the Adirondack Mountains. Now for someone, who with age and infirmities, has come to dislike the cold, snow and general yuck of the Hudson valley in late winter it might seem strange to head north into more snow and cold, but the chance to visit with a good friend, photographer, whitewater kayaker, banjo picker and traveler is going to be well worth the trip.
