50 states: Mom, meet Arizona: Part II

I finally got around to posting more pictures from my Mom's trip to Arizona

We took her to the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and Sedona. It was definitely a lot packed into one weekend, including celebrating the fiance's birthday, but it was fun. Seeing the Grand Canyon was something I've wanted since the fourth grade. 

The majestic landmark is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World for a reason. We spent the afternoon at Grand Canyon National Park and ended the day with a ranger sunset talk. It was amazing to see people from all over the World brought together by one place. 

The next morning we headed south to Flagstaff, where we stayed the majority of the day. Downtown Flagstaff is such a cool place, complete with historical buildings and local restaurants, shops and businesses. 

We perused a farmer's market and left with some yummy cheese from Fossil Creek Creamery and apples. We had fondue and a sampler from Beaver Street Brewery. This is a must-visit if you're in the area. The Bramble Berry Brew is worth it alone.

After lunch, we made our way down to Sedona and the pretty red rocks. The fiance and I roughed it last time we were there and didn't go to any of the shops. This time around, we did the tourist thing, which was OK. I prefer camping in Sedona, though.

And my Mom finally got to see an Arizona cactus.
