My home, my life, my Arizona by: Donna Hartell

I have been living in Phoenix for the last 11 years moving from Reno Nevada. This area has so much to do and everyday you can see beauty all around you. I love that this town has sports teams, and lots of other exciting things to do year round. I love the weather here except when it gets to be 115 degrees. Two of my children moved here after me and they live and work in Phoenix and are raising their families here. The too love everything to do here.

The beauty of the Sonoran Desert

The beauty of the Sonoran Desert is something that can't be duplicated anywhere in the world. I love the desert with all of the plants, cactus, and wildlife and most of all I love the fact I don't have to shovel snow ever again. I came here for warm weather and warm weather I got!

The Sports Teams in Arizona are AWESOME

I love watching and attending all of the sporting events in Phoenix. Staring with the Diamondbacks baseball, Phoenix Suns basketball, Cardinals football, and of course the Coyotes hockey. These are some of the reasons I love living in Arizona and did I mention the weather!

The Grand Canyon is one of the most breathtaking places in the world. It is located in the northern part of Arizona and has over 5 million visitors per year

Sedona is an amazing place to visit. You can hike, ride mountain bikes, or just sit and look at the beauty it offers.

The Painted Desert is a thing of beauty. I looks like somebody took some paint and covered the ground. There is no other place on Earth that has this beauty.

Flagstaff Arizona has the highest peak where people in Arizona can go to ski. It is also home to the Lowell Observatory and NAU university.

The Amazing students at Papago

So when my friends and family ask me "what do you like most about living in Arizona"? I reply these kids at Papago, the amazing things they do and say everyday is my favorite part of living in Arizona". "And did I mention the weather"?

This is my Arizona
