Sunsets and Cacti of Arizona - Learn why I love AZ at https://heidipowell.net/5189
How could I not be grateful for this great state I live in? Yes, it?s hot, but I love this heat. I prefer heat to cold any day. I love the cacti, I love the hills, desert mountains, the birds, the sunsets, the incredible hikes, bike trails, and everything Arizona has to offer.

If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be here. I love my home state.

Today, I am grateful for Arizona ?

  1. I could not agree more! The ‘Beautiful Copper State’ has the greatest variety of terrain within the shortest travel distance, than any other state. And, the ‘Grand Canyon’ is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world! I’m a born/raised Arizona native (attended the same high school as Heidi ‘Mt View Toro Class of 83’). I’ve visited a lot of other beautiful states across the US. However, I continue to believe, Arizona’s the only place to live year round. I definitely agree with my fellow ‘AZ pal Heidi’… I’ll take the heat over cold on any given day. Walking around in extreme heat, wearing summer attire, sweating and drinking more water for a few months…is far better than walking around in freezing cold wearing 3-4 layers of bulky clothing and drinking way too much coffee, month, after month, after month – BRRRR! If your a person that loves the outdoors… ARIZONA is ‘THE PLACE’ to enjoy life and all of its nature! Oh yes, and today… is Nov 12th w/ high temp of 81 degrees!!! What…I won’t need my winter jacket today? DARN!

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more! My daughter and I moved out there for a year and loved it – but had to move back to NJ shortly after. Now we are selling our house, packing up my father and dog and hopefully moving back soon! I can’t wait to sit outside at night and get lost in the stars.

  3. I was born in Puerto Rico, lived in Florida for 22 years, my husband found a job here in Arizona so the last almost 2 years this have been our home state. It is our first time we go past Texas. Arizona have been a big blessing in our lives. I never thought I will be hiking in the beautiful desert mountains. I feel the weather is perfect and magnificent variety of vegetation is amazing. Heidi I am with you I love your home state that is now mine too. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I totally agree! I’ve been here for five years and have no plans to go ANYWHERE, which for me is huge. I moved around a few times in my adult life and was in Seattle for a year and a half and Kansas City for a year, but found my home in the desert. I even bought a house, which says a lot!

  5. I so agree with you! I’m from switzerland and I so fell in love with your state! Can stop coming back for more!

  6. I’m from Qu?bec, Canada so I live in cold weather half of the year. I went in Arizona in 1997 for a month (externship) and I ABSOLUTELY fell in love with your state. I wish, one day, to be able to bring my whole family there… one day…. so much to see!!!

  7. HI Heidi! I agree with you, even though I’m not from there. I came back to my home state of Portland, Oregon and after only being here for the past few months I’ve realized, I miss the desert! I lived in Tucson and will be planning to move back the middle of next month. I can’t wait to hit the trails, jump on my bike and go for a ride, and run the roads again. Thank you for all you do and wish you the best of luck with the birth of your little one. Many Blessings to you!
