FC: Arizona, 2008
2: Chapter 1 In the Spring of 2008, we traveled to Globe, Arizona to attend the wedding of Cindy's cousin. Globe is about 2 hours East of Phoenix in the mountains of Arizona. Arizona mountains appear quite different than the mountains of Colorado, New Mexico, or mountains in the Eastern United States- all of those mountains have trees.
