April 23 Photo of the Day: Arizona

September 21, 2004 – Day 4 of our canyon tour in Utah and Arizona.

On our drive to the Jacob Lake Inn at dusk, we were watchful for deer, however at one point I was surprised to hear Lesa yell "COW". Apparently bovines are allowed to roam freely in that part of Arizona and are a real danger – a half dozen or so were just a few feet off the side the road as we passed them. Who knew!

That evening we overheard a couple in the restaurant who arrived after dark and travelling by motorcycle talk about how scary it was with so many deer on the road.

Just for fun, here's a scan of one of my grandmother's slides, taken I'm guessing in the late 50's at the North Rim.
