east of the Grand Canyon

This is nearest to Cameron, Arizona. The canyon becomes flatter, almost like cracks in the flat land with the river carved below the rocks. This was sketched at one of the Navaho Indian jewelry stands. Heading south toward Flagstaff, the land flattens as you pass through the Painted Desert. Then further south, the landscape dramatically changes once again. You rise up into the wooded (and scortched) mountains around Flagstaff. The temperature north near the canyon was 20 degrees warmer than the cool mountains. This part of the world really is amazing.
