Arizona's beauty is displayed in sacred places that evoke a sense of awe and worship, not to mention the need to go on a vacation just to see these locations. This is truly a multicultural book filled with sites from all religious traditions.
Havasu Falls might be Arizona's most scenic and most hidden spot. ~ pg. 177
The book is divided up into main areas:
Phoenix and Vicinity
Tucson and Southern Arizona
Prescott and West-Central Arizona
Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona
Sedona and Vicinity
Who would have thought of a gold mine as a healing and spiritual retreat? There is great variety here. Your heart may begin to long to run away to one of these retreats or visit a monastery no matter what your religious beliefs. These locations speak of a peaceful place to worship your creator and to connect with your spiritual self.
Each section is about two pages long and has the location, description and directions as well as the author's observations which are always entertaining.
"The bright aqua door stands out on the quiet side street near fraternity and sorority houses at the busy University of Arizona. "Peace on Earth" and an image of a dove are etched into the glass arch over the door, a sign of the calm respite that awaits you inside."
As someone who has visited the Painted Desert, I can say this book is only an introduction to an entire world of beautiful places that are definitely easier to visit when the weather is cooler! Driving across America after college was a fun education.
