Voters approved under prop to await with this question in front of the voters, and they said, yes, they want to see more strategic targeted protected investments into our K 12 system.

Tribes Without Clean Water Demand an End to Decades of US Government Neglect

"The full. us senate is set to consider a major. Bipartisan water bill. That would update water infrastructure across the us arizona. Public radio's ryan hinds reports. The package includes funding for tribal drinking water projects. The thirty five billion dollar drinking water and wastewater infrastructure act is the first legislation to advance out of senate committee related to the biden harris administration sweeping infrastructure proposal it would invest in alternate water sources like desalination and storm and wastewater re-use across the country along with updating aging water infrastructure but one key component of the bill is the reauthorization of the indian reservation drinking water program. Decide senator mark. Kelly is a co-sponsor of the bill. Too many tribal communities lack access to running water and don't have wastewater infrastructure and the drought conditions. Made this worse. This fifty million dollars annually is going to help tribes complete these water projects. Every year kelly says in arizona alone. The program would fund ten tribal drinking water projects each year. It's estimated about a third of residence on the navajo nation. Lack water in their homes which has myriad negative impacts on local economies in public health. The infrastructure act also includes funding to prevent water waste as well as technologies to shield water systems from cyber threats. Climate change drought and wildfire.

The Fight Over The Future Of Natural Gas

"Keeps your apartment warm Okay i know i know. Our electricity is some mix of renewables. But i'm pretty sure that our heat is gas right and so many people are in exactly the same situation about half of the homes and businesses in the country a burn gas for heat in the winter especially in the cold part of the country. Right plus a lot of people have gas water heaters. This is basically your own little fossil fuel power. Plant right there in your basement and it really adds up between heating homes and businesses burning fossil fuels on site accounts for more than ten percent of the whole country greenhouse emissions. Wow okay all right. And i'm glad we're talking about this because i feel like i remember. Natural gas has been pitched as this cleaner fuel cities. You know buying buses running on compressed natural gas and that's supposed to be a good thing question mark while it is cleaner. It was cleaner than the diesel that those buses were burning. And it's a lot cleaner than coal but you know when you're putting up buildings and installing equipment. That's going to be in place for twenty thirty fifty years. Maybe cleaner isn't good enough anymore. I'm killed really bad about this. Fossil fuel plant. I've got my house now again. Guilt about this is not the point. The point is there is an alternative Another path at least for new buildings and also for when a lot of other buildings you need their furnaces replaced. Okay okay and i talked to one of the people who's pushing this alternative ali hundred mahia cunningham with the natural resources defense council. We're going to have to tackle emissions from pretty much everywhere. The benefit of buildings is that we have the technology. Okay dan what technology we talking about. It's got a name electrification. I like the name. But i i do feel like with electricity. I mean there are greenhouse gas emissions from generating electricity to right right absolutely for now but the thing is if your goal is zero greenhouse emissions burning gas will never get you there but electricity could if it's coming from places like solar and wind and hydro which increasingly it is so the environmentalists are saying if you're putting up a new building making decisions for decades to come. Don't lock yourself into burn guests. Give yourself the chance to be zero. Carbon got it. Okay but what does that. Look like dan. Well let's go to our next story like sitting here. We have tyler holland. Who works with construction company called wiedeman corporation and he is going to give us a little audio tour to explain this whole electrification idea like sixth all electric apartment building that. We've done john reid from our member station k. u. e. r. actually recorded this was masked and socially distanced. Mike was out on the end of a long pole. Now that la this buildings six stories high still under construction not many people around so this is an affordable housing project now in most buildings in salt lake city and really lots of places in the us where it gets cold there would be a pipe underground going into this building. Delivering gas to heating furnaces. But here in this building. There's no gas hookup. Its all electric. Every apartment has an electric heat pump on the wall which takes care of heating and cooling. Okay dan i feel like i should know this. But what what's a heat pump The heat pumps are basically the key to electrification They work pretty. Much like refrigerators. They use compression and expansion of a gas to move heat from outside to inside or the other way around in this case the heat pumps are capturing heat from the air outside and moving it inside the apartment for heating and in summertime. they do the opposite. They'll move heat from the inside to the outside are also heat. Pump water heaters. I will tell you from personal experience. They have gotten so much more efficient and they just work better than they used to. Are they really expensive. Though for big buildings the machines themselves can be more expensive than say a gas furnace or a standard of water heater. Which is why tyler said. They only did their first all electric building. Because there was this environmentally-minded developer give group. That insisted on it. Tyler's company thought this is terrible. It's going to cost a lot extra. But once they started working on it they say turned out to be cheaper. You eliminate gas taps you eliminate running all those gas lines through your building so by not putting all that gas infrastructure in there. You're kind of saving money. Right and now tyler company is totally sold on this. They're sharing their blueprints and budgets with other builders just to show them that it makes sense for business for the climate also just for cleaner air. We everybody to do it. I mean it's it's everybody's air that we're all breathing makes my mountain bike ride that much easier and the basic idea is down the road. This building will have zero greenhouse emissions once. It's getting that electricity from the sun or the wind or from falling water Okay got it. So will we see more building like this around the country. A lot of cities with big climate goals are trying to promote all electric buildings like this. They're really focused. On new construction not so much. Retrofitting existing buildings. Nobody's forcing people a tariff. Their gas furnaces at this point and salt lake city is not considering any formal ban on new gas hookups. Vicki bennett who's director of sustainability. There says they'd like to try persuasion. Incentives maybe expediting building permits at our next step is exploring what sort of incentives would be would make a difference you know what would be enough to get them to pay more attention to going to all electric buildings but there are cities dozens of them mostly in california that have adopted rules that say in one way or another new buildings cannot get connected to gas pipelines anymore So that's what that person from. The american gas association was talking about like at the top of the show. The campaign against gas exactly and that movement reached the third place. We're going to go visit flagstaff. Arizona whom where nicole anti-monopoly is director of sustainability. that was one of our strategies. Could we say no new natural gas in new construction. And this is where they run into the backlash. Yeah i imagine. The gas industry wasn't happy about this. Not really we have seen some internal documents from a meeting of the executive committee of the american gas association last year An environmental watchdog group that climate investigation center obtained these documents through a public records request. And they showed that by late. Two thousand nineteen a group of big gas utilities had already launched a campaign in favor of what they call consumer choice. One of them is southwest gas. The biggest gas provider in arizona and in february of two thousand twenty. The speaker of the arizona state house introduced a bill that makes it illegal for cities in the state to limit gas hookups. Republicans generally supported it and in arizona. The law just sailed through a passed both houses and signed into law within a month. So what does that do to to the city of flagstaff. Plans nicole antenna says it pretty much left them looking for a plan. B it definitely put a huge hurdle in our plans for promoting electrification and fuel switching Instead of requiring developers to go all electric they have to persuade them to the approach. Utah's taking and since then similar bills have passed and three other states and they're being considered in a dozen more cleaning. Florida georgia whole bunch of states. Well so this is my question about the like you know. Consumers can choose. I mean our individual consumers actually choosing here dan or is the developer kind of choosing for the consumer. It is an interesting conflict. You have these states stepping in and they're saying on behalf of consumers although it's also on behalf of the gas suppliers right no you. Cities cannot interfere with the consumer's right to burn gas or the developers right to build a gas burning building and the cities are saying just like we have building codes for public safety. We want to enact rules that will help end climate change and that means no new construction that uses fossil fuels. So they're saying the community is making this choice and we should have the right to choose right. I mean that's what it kind of felt like we were talking about kansas way back at the beginning of the episode. Felt like the folks in lawrence have decided on this goal which is one hundred percent renewable which means down the road. Gas wouldn't be an option like that's the choice. Yeah i asked. Jasmine more. The city of lawrence's director of sustainability. How this would affect your city's plans if it passed. And she said it's kind of hard to tell. But the bill is written. Very broadly it prohibits any municipal ordinance that quote discriminates against restricts limits or impairs. Close the use of a utility. So she's worried that it might even ban city programs that are aimed at promoting energy efficiency since that would reduce gas use. Wow that's pretty intense. Then she also said this no matter what. We'll figure out a way to continue to make progress. She sounds pretty determined. I'll say that yes. She does okay. Dan charles as always we appreciate you. Thanks for bringing this to the show. Thank you

Creating water out of thin air in the Navajo Nation

"This week. We're talking about how technology can help us. Death to climate change. The west is in a drought. That's only getting worse. And drought is an even bigger problem in places that have uneven access to water to start with in the navajo nation in the southwestern u. s. many homes have no running water at all. The tribe is working with the startup source. Which makes hydro panels powered panels that pull water vapor from the air and condense it into clean drinking water and so is president of the cameron chapter in the navajo nation. Where one family got source panels. The summer. he described the water. They make when. I was a child when we went out hunting. Small game My grandfather when the storm went through new would have craters in the ascent stone. The hell water. So we stu been over and drink the water craters in pure rainwater when i first tasted that water at this flashback to that part of my memory. So that's what the water tastes like really clean pure water by it came from the rain. Wow and is it the one family in cameron. That has them right now right now. Yeah people that don't have running water. Some of them have to drive now or and a half one way to town to get drinking water. People want waters not expensive. Sheriff you have access to the store around the corner. Yes but for us in reality. Is that going to the town of flagstaff. You're spending maybe fifty dollars on gas and other things when you go by water in town a case of water water actually caused a new round. Sixty eighty bucks you know. How often do people have to go like he. Can you estimate how much a month that might cost. And how much somebody is this. One household is saving with hydro panels. Would they would go probably three days out of the week to get water but we also have voting that still rely on their livestock cattle horses. So they're running almost Daily to haul water right more. Broadly when you look at bringing infrastructure to cameron and the navajo nation hydra panels but also like renewable energy new electric grids. Do you feel hopeful that you know. The reservation has a chance to maybe create a new vision of energy and water. That isn't so destructive one. The things about the climate change also is that we get more sunlight now and i think the tribe itself has a lot of interest in renewable energy and energy developed in our community and cameron could be sold to california and surrounding states. At the same time we also would like a smaller scale of solar energy to homestead. Are off the grid that way. We don't have to run more wires on our land which is such an eyesore to me. There's a price you pay you know. And and the price is now gonna be coming out of your pocket but are you willing to sacrifice the beauty of the land to get power. I mean do you think that could become a model for the rest of the country and other parts of world. I always tell people that are interested in in trying. Something new in cameron were willing to try it. Here be the i if it works here work anywhere

Their relative position Tombaugh spent a year examining pairs of photographs. Then in nineteen thirty, he noticed a tiny displacement within weeks.

Apple Fire in California sending 'large area of smoke' to Phoenix, hundreds of miles away

"Smoke from the apple fire in Riverside County, California and Katya hours wildfire expert Jim Cross joining us now first, Jim just how big is this fire? And also, why is the smoke settling here in the valley hundreds of miles away? Well, the fire is close to banning not far from Palm Springs area. It's more than 21,000 acres. At one point, it was 12% contained. Now they've back it down. 25% contained for a while, It was down to zero, but it is pumping up up a a tremendous tremendous amount amount of of smoke. smoke.

Amid surge in cases, Arizona readies new push to slow COVID-19 spread

"Nearly ninety percent of Arizona's I see beds are full Republican Governor Doug Ducey. ducey faces widespread outrage for downplaying the virus, and even obstructing local officials from acquiring masks in June as case numbers began to explode. Do see reverse course and allowed mayors to issue their own virus guidelines under growing pressure, but he resisted calls to pass a statewide mask mandate or reimposes stay at home order, which expired in May with little restriction on the state's reopening. Facing rising numbers June do see ordered bars and gyms to close again, but Arizona residents say the actions are too little too late. The family of a sixty five year old Mexican. American man who died of Covid, nineteen in Phoenix, is accusing Arizona. State officials of being directly responsible for his death in a scathing obituary in the Arizona Republic, the family of Of Mark, Anthony or Keesa wrote quote. His death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to jeopardize the health of Brown bodies through a clear lack of leadership refusal to acknowledge the severity of the crisis and inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize risk. This is or Qisas daughter Kristin an interview with A. Republican. Governor DC's got blood on a fan. He was late to close down the state. He was early to open X and. The manner in which he opened allowing things to go back as normal is, in my opinion, the reason why my dad is being buried today. We'll for more. We're going to Tucson to speak with a local leader. WHO's been standing up to Governor Doug Ducey. That's Mayor Ricky Romero. She is the first Latina and the first woman to be elected mayor of Tucson. She was previously. Tucson city council member for over a decade, the daughter of migrant workers we welcome you to democracy now Mayor Ramiro. Your thoughts on governor Ducey's responsibility. What do you want to see the state? OF ARIZONA DO? And what are you doing in Tucson? Good Morning Amy. Thank you so much for having me this morning. We have been in a state of crisis. Since governor ducey decided to hastily reopen the state. We were in a very good place. Coming to a plateau here in the city of Tucson relocated in Pima County in pima. Cownie, we were seeing twenty twenty four cases a day. It was a plateau now. We are seeing almost three hundred cases a day in Pima County. In a county of million people we. We are we see anywhere from five to twenty ICU beds, which is very very concerning in straining our doctors and nurses at our hospitals. We jumped up in front of Governor Ducey, a few mayors Mayor Gayle from Phoenix. Mayor Evans from flagstaff in myself Joe jumped ahead of the governor to call the stay at home. orders in to close down bars back in March He took our cue few days later, and with his executive order he tied the hands of mayors in cities and towns and county and county health departments throughout the state by preempting us from from doing anything that he wouldn't do. Most recently, he untied the hands of mayors. In counties throughout the state to do mandatory mask ordinances. Throughout the state, but what we have been seeing with Governor Ducey is a microcosm of what has been happening with trump in his federal response to this pandemic, which is tepid, a tepid response a pushback on science and what public health officials recommend that we do. Every day that governor Ducey Wade's. We see three thousand cases in Arizona and. And the crisis continues more lives lost, and so what we have been done doing here in Tucson is basically pushing the governor to do the right thing because it's a very real threat. If we do move ahead in front of him. The state legislature, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a bill about three years ago fourteen eighty seven that if any city does anything, any law that preempts the state that are stayed shared revenue could be pulled from us, and those are millions and millions of dollars. That, we could potentially lose and so in this crisis we see ourselves as mayors. In fear in fear for the lives of our communities in fear of for the inability for us to be able to do anything so, what mayors across Arizona and I have been doing his publicly pressuring the governor to the right thing. The one thing that he could do that could help is do. Is Institute a mandatory mask? Executive Order Statewide and he refuses to even do that.

Police Body Cam Footage Is Being Used For Surveillance, Activists Say

"So there are big differences in the police reform bills that Republicans and Democrats are pushing in Congress. One thing they do share in common is more money for local police departments that promised to use body worn cameras. But some activists say that police departments are inappropriately using these cameras for surveillance rather than accountability purposes. Member station. Cage's easy in Phoenix. Heather van Block, Lind reports. Cleveland Ali is an advocate for indigenous sacred sites and a self described anarchist and peaceful protester. But police and Flagstaff didn't agree at an event a couple of years ago into 1018 the same day that the city of Flagstaff formally announced there Indigenous Peoples Day celebration, which actually has been contentious for years. Myself on DH. 40 people rallied in downtown Flagstaff. The rally lasted a few hours, with protesters marching through downtown, holding signs and chanting. Police walked alongside keeping roadways clear for traffic. Everybody went home. There were no arrests until three weeks after the event when police brought in Manali in about 10 others on charges of obstructing the public thoroughfare. Based on footage from body camps. Sonali says police actions against his group are not about public safety, but politically motivated. We're fighting on the grounds that this is an act of state repression, basically that you know they're trying to chill descent. Undermined ascent and criminalize it. Dave Moss with the Electronic Frontier Foundation says. Police warned body cams have turned law enforcement into a surveillance network. Police departments are making decisions about surveillance technology at parties and hotel rooms in closed door meetings with salespeople with marketers from tech companies who are trying to tell them about all the miracles of the technology, but not telling them about any of the risks. And we need a process where the public is engaged, elected representative. They're engaged and it's not just a sales situation. He says. Police should not record footage during First Amendment activities like journalists at work or during a religious practice or any and all protests. Ultimately, if we're trying to address police accountability if we're trying to address racism, Layering on surveillance is not going to help that. It's going to exacerbate it. But when Seattle police said they turned off their body cams during so called First Amendment events, protesters there accused them of trying to hide evidence of excessive force or abuse. It's not a new debate. Concerns about how Bodycam footage can and should be used are as old as the cameras themselves. Some police say surveillance cuts both ways. Officers can have bodycam footage is used as evidence against them, and just like video can lead to officers being arrested or dismissed for bad behavior. It can also exonerate them. Right now. Policies on body camera use very widely. There's no federal standard bills from both parties currently before Congress can't mandate, local police departments use body cameras. But only say they must if they use new federal funds to buy the

Embracing the Spirit of Adventure in the Midst of a Financial Depression

"Of us have a list of things we'd like to do. We have a list of adventures. We'd like to participate in and it's always someday. Someday I'll do that but there's generally something in the way usually it's our jobs because after all most adventures take more than two weeks unless you're in Germany and which case most adventures take more than eight weeks released a lot of the fun ones that we want and so what we often lack is time not necessarily money but time. Because it's just not the right time or I'm right now. I'm building my career or I've got to get another job. I don't WanNa have a gap in my resume. And so we're often looking forward to the next thing the next thing but sometimes a break is forced on you. Sometimes you get laid off. Sometimes everything shuts down and the adventures are closer to home. And so I wanNA give you some ideas to help you really focus on recognizing that you can have an adventure right now in the midst of everything if you will embrace the spirit of adventure you can have an adventure and your own house. You can have an adventure in your backyard. I think sometimes we really appreciate this with children because they appreciate the simplest things they love set up in the backyard and sleep in the tent. We adults take what I want to sleep with a ten in the backyard. I don't WanNa go sleep in the tent in the backyard children. They love it and I think that we can embrace and do really well if we would embrace a little bit more of that spirit of adventure to kick off today show read you a short story about a man named Jim and To my knowledge this is a true story but I read this number of years ago in a book called locusts on the horizon which fascinating book really good book but in this book locusts on the horizon. I found this story. It's called three Buderus with the Spanish presentation pronunciation three boroughs. Jim was a traveling man and he was free. Like few are half white and half native Shoshoni. Jim Grew up in rural Idaho and he knew what freedom was he also knew there was more to life than the rat race when he turned eighteen. He was a natural for the US army to recruit so he volunteered and eventually wound up in the Republic of Vietnam with a special forces after a particularly fierce fight with regulars from the North Vietnamese army. Jim Wound up back in the USA with a permanent limp and missing an I twenty five years later in the early nineteen nineties. Jim decided he had enough of the daily grind and he wanted to spend more time seeing America. He had been teaching survival courses and his students volunteered to help him make his traveling rig. Almost everything. In the project was scavenged or bought second-hand. His Gypsy wagon was an old Nissan pickup. That had been rolled and the engine and transmission had already been salvaged from it. They took the crushed body off the frame and kept the hydraulic brake system. And the parking brake intact. They made a wooden wagoner's seat on the front with a wooden pedal for the brakes. They then used scavenged lumber and and corrugated roofing metal to build a covered gypsy wagon on the old pickup frame into the Gypsy wagon. They put an old woodstove built a bed and constructed storage areas including a hidden lockable compartment to store his guns a deep cycle. Rv Battery was put into its own wooden box. Hooked through a small regulator to a small solar panel this powered an automotive cabin light inside the Gypsy Wagon. An old donated forty channel. Cb Radio and a scavenged AM FM car. Stereo mounted on the back of the Gypsy Wagon was a steel whip style. Cbs China and near the front was mounted a scavenged car radio antenna. His Motor was a team of three boroughs. Harnessed side by side. The harnesses were made from old discarded. Firehoses the rig rolled on old castoff car tires wouldn't have lasted twenty minutes at road speeds on an automobile but it borough speeds. They were good pretty much indefinitely. The three boroughs restrung enough together. That if they didn't feel like stopping man sometimes they didn't they could tow the entire rig with the brakes locked and the tires skidding a small trailer using bicycle rims and tires was made and was towed behind the dipsy wagon. The entire small trailer was a chicken coop for small. Bantam chickens on top of the chicken coop. Jim kept a container of chicken. Feed and a couple of bales of hay for the boroughs when grazing was sparse. Such as when they took a break alongside a desert road so at the breathtaking speed of three miles per hour gem saw America lived. The life met people wherever he went and had more than one argument with the highway patrol. Mostly about traveling alongside the shoulder of the road on the interstate. The last we saw Jim was fourth of July nineteen ninety four and he was camped out. Near the base of CA- China peaks just outside of Flagstaff Arizona. His goal was to head back to where he grew up on the Salmon River in Idaho. His guests was it was going to take three months more or less. He wasn't in a hurry because the journey is what mattered and the destination was just part of that now. That's Jim but I think that if you're going to have an adventure one of the things that you can do. You can embrace the spirit of an adventure. You can embrace the spirit that says it's more about the journey and getting out there and getting gone then about the stuff and if he will do that if you will make that embrace what you will find is. You're no longer bound captive to needing more money as go through these adventures. I'm GonNa give you ideas of how you can minimize the cost. And I think you need a little bit of money but not much if you follow in. Jim Spirit recognized that he needed almost no money for his particular adventure. I mean a couple of bales of Hay here and they're nice. That gas is pretty low. Cost Right now but still. Jim didn't need gas at all. They need a little bit of grass from the side of the highway. And some bales of Hay and you can have a similar adventure if you embrace it. The cool thing is though with a little bit of modern technology you can live more comfortably on an adventure cheaply then at any time in human history you can have all the comforts of home with you on an adventure traveling adventure more cheaply than ever before. It's really really incredible. How much is available to

Arizona National Parks

"Amateur Traveler episode seven hundred today. The amateur traveler talks about Spanish explorers native Americans a volcano crater cactus and canyons of various sizes. One really really grand and one really really small as we go to the National Parks of Arizona. Welcome to the immature traveler. I'm your host Chris. Kristen sending this is indeed episodes. Seven hundred of the amateur traveler as we approach the fifteenth year anniversary. So let's celebrate a and now let's get back to work. Let's talk about Arizona. I like to welcome back to the show. Gary Aren't from everything. Dash EVERYWHERE DOT com. Who's come to talk to us? About Arizona? National Parks Carry. Welcome back to the show. Thank you for the. What is it? Fifteen or sixteen. So it's not like it's been that long since I've talked to Gary Gary and I also have been a CO hosting this. We can travel with a couple of other friends for ten years now so we get to talk periodically but you pitched me going to Arizona and seeing national parks I would say why should someone do that. But you already said national parks so Arizona just has the Grand Canyon right well. That's that's the big one I would say you're looking at. That's what it's best known for but actually Arizona has twenty two different national park service sites. Which places at third amongst all states as far as the number of sites behind California and Alaska only having some second now that I think about it but yeah there's a lot and I've been to a lot of these but you actually came up with some that I'd never heard of so. That was one of the reasons that I was anxious to. Have you back on the show and talk about this but let's talk about? Why should someone go to Arizona and see the national parks? Well for starters you can go year round and I think that something that you can't do easily in a lot of parks last year. For example I did a trip to southern Oregon and Northern California and even in June a lot of the parks there were snowed in and when I showed in I mean. Twenty feet of snow snowed in right so this is in the summer. And they're still so much snow. Because it's an altitude. And you're you're not gonNA really see that in Arizona Star in in the south so if you're looking for a trip in the winter or something it's it's a great place to go and there's a great diversity. These aren't just natural sites although it certainly has those there's a great deal of history. That goes back told him. The ancient people who lived in this area before Europeans showed up as well as a westward expansion in a host of other things so there really is a wide diversity. I also going to see some landscapes that you're really not going to see anywhere else or other desserts in the United States but The SONORAN desert that. You're going to see here is really unique and have some things that you're just not gonNA find saying California Nevada or even Utah. The one exception I can think of to. You're not going to run into whether here would be the North Rim of the Grand Canyon Which closes in October want to say because it had closed before. We did a trip in October of last year. It hadn't snowed in yet but all services were closed on the largest closed in all facilities are closed at that point and then it will snow in. And they'll stop plowing the roads as soon as the snows happen. Yeah so I was last there. In January of twenty twenty those primarily in the Tucson area but then I made a trip up north around flagstaff and a lot of people don't realize that there's snow up in flagstaff primarily because of the elevation than anything. And so yeah. There was definitely snow on the ground when I visited some of the sites but I live in Minnesota so this was like your price my first winter. It was not a lot of snow. Wasn't that coal right. The roads are open. You can you can actually go and see stuff well and I remember being at the Grand Canyon in April when there was snow at the Rim and it was eighty degrees at the bottom so it depends a lot where you are absolutely. So what kind of itinerary do you recommend? It really depends on where you're going to be. I think most people are probably going to be flying into Tucson or Phoenix right and the third place might be flagstaff. One smaller town. But it's in the north and There's kind of pockets of parks around those. And the first one I would bring up is a park while National Monument and it's extremely unique among all the sites in the United States that's Hokum National Monument anemic because you cannot visit and if you could visit. There is nothing to see well then. It's unique in an unusual way. I have needs a little bit of explanation so just south of Phoenix is the reservation. There was an archaeological dig. Their WANNA say took place in the seventies sixties and seventies called snake down and what they ended up doing was once. The excavation was over the reburied it. So you got declared a national monument and it's on the reservation and they don't let you go and visit the site or snake town is but if they did there is literally nothing to see because it's buried and for National Park collectors. It poses a problem because for whatever reason it's still on the books huff thirds no visitor center. There's no there's nothing but technically make them really getting technical here if you look at the outline of what constitutes the National Monument isn't interstate that runs through it so should actually go to the Beltway Beneath Phoenix. YOU'RE ON THAT ROAD. You will technically drive through this area and you'll see buffing. There's nothing there so it's kind of an oddity on. I don't know why it's still on the books or why it's there. But supposedly there was a cultural center for the tribe and you go there and they had a display about snake Tama. They closed it. And they're going to be reopening again and you could actually get a stamp there and that would be the closest thing to visit other than that I mean. I think we could talk about so there of the twenty two sites. There are three national parks proper. The first is obviously the Grand Canyon. I don't know how much we need to talk about that. I'm sure done shows on the Grand Canyon. We have done a show on the Grand Canyon in the first year of Amateur Traveler. And then we did another show later on about Rafting the Grand Canyon with the George Wendt the now late founder of ores rafting But that's been a little while ago so it's worth a mention. Yeah I mean everyone's familiar with it. Is You mentioned you can access it from the North or the South? It's a very common trip for people to make from Las Vegas. Yeah although people go to the South Rim from Las Vegas. That's long drive right. I mean and it should be noted. The Grand Canyon says enormous chunk taken out of the state of Arizona and their bridges to get around. It writes the you have to drive around at our fly over it. The southern rim is lower elevation and by far the more popular of the two sides. You can visit. It gets ninety percent of the tourism. Am I read about that? Would sound about right if you go further up river you get into the Glen Canyon Recreation area. And that's where you'll see that's like horseshoe bend is a famous site of most people may have seen the photo also National Park Service site on the Colorado River but not part of the Canyon and if you go downstream there are also some Indian reservations. One of which which famously built the Skywalk horseshoe-shaped. Yeah so it it. It's one of the most popular parks in the United States. It should have been put on the list of the seven. Natural Wonders of the world said the underground river in the Philippines. Made it not that. We're bitter fool. No in the way they walked in it was kind of ridiculous but yeah it's the one thing that if you're an American or even if you're not American coming to visit the United States I think you should I mean it's literally alongside maybe yellowstone in Yosemite those are considered the three crown jewel national parks in the US system brand. It really is an incredible
