We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world

According to legend, Phoenix gets its name from Cambridge-educated pioneer Darrell Duppa, who saw the ruins and prehistoric canals of the Hohokam and believed another civilization would rise from the ashes. A short weekend in the nation’s 6th largest city is always an adventure.  The name Arizona is a Spanish version of the Pima Indian word Arizonac for “little spring place”. The Aztec’s version is arizuma meaning “silver-bearing”. Arizona once had a navy consisting of two boats on the Colorado River. They were used to prevent California from encroaching on Arizona territory.
