  8. What dynamic geography and topography of rocky mountains and valleys in Arizona! The rock formation of red-rock mountains is interesting. I could recognize bell and coffee pot but not Snoopy. The elk has such fine antlers. I’m in English mode tonight.

      おはようございます。こんな堪能な英語で書かれてしまいますと、コメントにご返事するのが困ってしまいます。スヌーピーは6番目の写真です。寝ています。 ここがデズニーのサンダーマウンテンのヒントになった所です。

  9. I visited Grand Canyon when I was a student. My friends and I drove from San Francisco to Phoenix which took 15 hours as we lost our way into some scary deserts at night. We arrived Grand canyon at 3.00am! Your photos certainly brought me happy memories. I didn;t get to see those interesting snoopy, coffee pot and bell rocks! I hope to visit these canyons again someday and spend 2-3 days there. I loved to see their huge cactus plants with flowers.

    Happy Weekend Saito-San.

  15. 流石にアメリカですね。スケールの規模が違います。背の高いサボテンも日本では見かけませんよね?

      おはようございます。 柱サボテンですね。フェニックスの名物だそうです。標高2000メートルを超えると育たないそうです。 日本では植物園にあるかどうかです。
