Arizona Mountains with Zeb the Duck

Leaving Utah, I Zeb the Duck, entered Arizona.

Mom said we would only be in Arizona for 30 miles, but to look out the window as the scenery is great.

Driving through these mountains was like looking at old western movies.

We stopped and I got out of the car, too, but the mountains were too tall to get me in many photos.   Our road, I-15, cut right through the mountains and there were few places to stop.

You will notice that there are no houses or people by the highway, in these rugged mountains.

No buildings and people in sight

OK, we found an exit and now let’s enjoy the Virgin River Canyon Recreation Area.   Picnic tables make this a perfect place to spend time, eat, and relax.

Admire the barren mountains with color in the rock.

You may want to fish today.   I don’t know where we are going, the signs say Las Vegas, but mom says we are not going to Las Vegas now.   Wherever we are going, I really like this mountain scenery in Arizona.
