About AZ Wonders

AZ Wonders is dedicated to sharing the amazing plants, places and people of Arizona with people around the world.

How this blog came to life

Before I started the blog, I used to post pictures on Facebook and tell a story or two about each adventure. My Facebook friends seemed to take interest based on their comments, even though most of my contacts do not live in Arizona.

Over time, I realized that more and more of my Facebook updates were about the wonders of Arizona. So, I decided to set up this blog and named it AZ Wonders. The response has been great!

Feedback and encouragement from my followers keeps me going. Through the WordPress blogging service I use, I am able to see where people are spending the most time on the blog.

The number one post (by far) that draws people to azwonders.com is Superstition Mountains cougar shadow. This blog post evidently ranks very high when people search for that amazing natural phenomenon that happens only a few days during the year.

  • 6 national forests

That’s a lot of ground to cover but I’m here to help you make the most of your time when you do venture out.



Here’s what Joni from Tucson said about AZ Wonders:

You have a very lovely site! I have lived in AZ since 1993. Aside from having spent much of the time since then dealing with a lot of obstacles of various sorts (mostly health), I’m not really an outdoors person. I used to be a road trip person, but it’s now more physically challenging. Anyway, the point is that after just about 20 minutes of glancing at some of your articles, suddenly after all these years, I had an urge to travel a bit and see a few of the places you’ve written about! That is, aside from seeing the Grand Canyon, which is still an unfulfilled aspiration. So, “inspiring” is a word I’d use to describe your page! 😀 Thanks for sharing your joy of AZ. :::claps:::
