Cooling Off with NAG

   This weekend is Pow Wow in the Pines, in the Flagstaff Arizona area.  This area is beautiful with tall pines and cool breezes all day long.  And don't forget the sweater.  The nights cool off a lot.

     My niece, SchanuzerQueen is heading that way so I am sure that I will get some pics to share soon.  If you are lucky enough to spend the weekend in that area, there is plenty to do.  Here is just a few -

     Bearizona - Experience animal wildlife the way it was meant to be, in a natural environment, all from the comfort and safety of your own vehicle. Your family will enjoy our wide variety of wildlife, from majestic bison and nimble big horn sheep to stealthy wolves and adorable bear cubs.
     Museum of Northern Arizona - Join artists, musicians, dancers, and cultural interpreters from the Navajo Nations as they gather at the Museum of Northern Arizona for the Navajo  Visitors will hear the Navajo language, see pots of clay being formed, and watch weavers create detailed designs on traditional looms. There are also opportunities to meet silversmiths, folk carvers, and painters. They will enjoy the pageantry of Navajo social dances and delight in centuries-old musical traditions. And they will be able to sample traditional foods—red and green chili stew, roasted sweet corn, and the ever-favorite Navajo tacos with frybread.

     Arizona Snowbowl While much of Arizona is living up to its hot, dry reputation with triple digit heat, Arizona Snowbowl is offering cool temperatures and cool views with the return of the Sunset Skyride! This Friday, June 8, and every second Friday of the month through October, the Sunset Skyride will run from 3 to 6 p.m. A free barbecue dinner comes with the purchase of a Sunset Skyride ticket and live music!

      The Lowell Observatory - features several large telescopes to explore the skies. Evening programs followed by sky viewing are offered throughout the year.

     Live web cam from Heritage Square - this is a lot of fun to watch.  Save this site for those great snowy winter days.  Actually, the entire site is great.

     As for myself - I would sit under a great big pine tree and read a book while waiting for the monsoon rains to hit.
