To wrap up my visit to Phoenix during Christmas, I made a short visit to the University of Arizona in Phoenix. To catch a last glimpse of the city from above, I took the opportunity to climb up the nearby mountain and the Hayden Butte Preserve with panoramic views of the whole area. It’s a bit of a hike, […]

War memorial and capitol building Pheonix-018

I collect capitol buildings, or maybe – visits to capitol buildings across the US. I mean, I try. Whenever I visit a capital city in a new state I try to fit it to my schedule to go and take a look at the capitol building. Florida, Illinois, Washington DC, Austin, and Harrisburg, are some of the […]

Rosson House Museum at Heritage Square Pheonix (4)

Last Christmas eve, I found myself stopping over at Phoenix Arizona with some time to visit some of the local attractions.

Although it’s not a large complex, and there definitely isn’t much to do, it […]

Ro Ho En - Japanese Friendship Garden  Phoenix (4)

Part of the Phoenix charm is with its desert scenery. Not much green, very distinct vegetation, so when you tour around Phoenix you become used to the yellowish flavor of it all. Which is why the Ro Ho En – the Japanese Friendship Garden – near the heart of Phoenix is very surprising. Somehow, I’m […]

Visions of Phoenix Arizona USA (10)

Looking to warm up in south-western US, I made a stop to visit Phoenix Arizona and experience some of the infamous desert scenery. Although I only made a stop for a couple of days, and those were around Christmas time where almost everything is closed down, I was able to see a few interesting things […]
