You covered a lot of ground and cool places in one day! Love your lazy co-worker and the fact that your dad, who is probably my age, does *not* know Journey (a favorite band from way back). Awesome video!!!

Violet BF says:

Loved it!!!

JRPetruk says:

OK, CA. You’re good on your home turf. But AZ is MINE! The East Saguaro National Park is smaller, but has much more biodiversity. The Rincon Mountains provide elevation changes so if you are a hiker (and I mean a REAL hiker), I think you’d enjoy the east more. On the other hand the west has (1) the world renowned Arizona Sonora Desert Museum – a MUST SEE, and (2) better camping facilities. Regardless, your videos are the best. Keep it up.
