Safe Travels This Weekend Everyone!

This photo was taken during a hike in Arizona - with a view of the road - way, way down  below!
  
The Arizona Desert has some of my favorite types of topography and vegetation in the United States.
The quote by Doug Larson* (on the top photo of this post) struck me as a good reminder that people should use extra caution while traveling this weekend.  Traffic increases during holiday weekends, and drivers may be driving unfamiliar routes or be distracted. 

Have a fun weekend - and be safe!

*Doug Larson was a columnist and editor in Wisconsin. 

Have you ever been to the desert?
What are your plans for this weekend?  

This post may be linked to one of the great link-up parties I follow and list on my blog.  Check them out!

  3. Amazing photos. Thank you.
    We try very hard NOT to travel on holiday weekends. Too many people, too many distractions.
    I hope your weekend is wonderful. And, of course, safe.

    1. We like to stick close to home on busy travel weekends too. Cool and rainy here this weekend, but we are having a relaxing weekend - thanks!

    1. With so many of us choosing to stay home, one would wonder then why there is so much traffic! :)

    1. A canoe trip sounds fun! Last year we canoed and tubed on the river over Labor Day weekend - this weekend feels much too cool to even think about submerging in the river!
