From Phoenix/AZ to Las Vegas/NV

For your reports/images, made outside Europe and the "Mediterranean" countries. Not to be too narrow minded and limited to our European/Mediterranean herps.

From Phoenix/AZ to Las Vegas/NV

Postby Jürgen Gebhart » Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:05 am

We (Wife and I) visited the US from June the 22nd to July the 6th .
Wow, what a great Vacation/Honeymoon Trip!
We visited most of the famous Places in North Arizona and south Nevada, drove 3.000 Miles through the Desert of the Southwest.
It was more a geological and an archeological Trip than a Herping Trip.
I saw very less Herps, not only about my wife, there were also other reasons, but later.
Let`s start with some Landscape and Indian housing pics.

We arrived Phoenix at night and drove to Sedona the “Capital of the Red Rock County” .

The main reason for that Trip was the 10th anniversary of our wedding.
We married at the same place, same church, same Date, same Time in 2004 and we have done it again in2014.
And don`t ask for it, there was no Elvis around!!! Only the Spirit – Viva Las Vegas!!!

Those landscapes bring back a few memories, although your pics of Antelope Canyon are much better than mine. I wonder if the Collared Lizard I saw at Wupatki will turn up in your pics :D looking forward to the rest.
