# 16 Phoenix – Just add water and hike

Nothing beats a good referral as they say in business. Equally as important nothing beats a good suggestion of great places to go for vacation and fun. Well as much as I enjoy giving my older brother a hard way to go. Today I have to give him a “high 5 ” for always talking about “The Zona”.

Even though he knows we are boat people, beach people, and bums. He also knows we value anywhere that is top shelf in the great outdoors. That combined with a great social and recreational environment creates a landscape for  exploration.

Recalling seven or eight years ago while visiting he brought us a book on Arizona and said you two have to go check this out “so get it on the list”. When people¬†reiterate things with passion more than once, twice or five times you had better listen up, because chances are there is something worth while to see… I say if you are gambling on sending water people to the desert you must be holding a hand full of Aces knowing you are right.

Thanks big brother for dialing us in on these Mile Marker Memories. You just forgot to tell me that once I turn left off I-40 west onto I-17 south that the Ambassador III would drop like a rock from 7000′ to 1400′ in short order. And that folks is the difference between the mountains and the desert.
