I have been in Utah and Arizona twice.
The first time we landed in Phoenix and we stayed in Scottsdale.
We rode on horseback in the desert early in the morning among snakes and cactuses.
The second time we drew by bus from San Francisco to Los Angeles and then through the dessert to
Arizona, staying one night in Phoenix.
Then we went to Utah where we stayed at Ruby's Inn, Bryce Canyon.
Both times we saw Grand Canyon - even from a helicopter and in a 3D movie.
