Patty and I spent a week in Arizona to cover K-State’s football team at the Cactus Bowl and we bought the Grand Canyon South Rim Aerial Tour from Westwind Air Service as a Christmas present to ourselves on December 24, 2017. The flight allowed us to see many of Arizona’s highlights in three hours: the Tonto National Forest, the Verde River, the Red Rock formations of Sedona, the San Francisco Peaks, the Painted Desert, the Navajo Indian Reservation, and the Grand Canyon, one of the seven wonders of the world. Thanks to Westwind Air Service for the experience to view such magnificent landscapes from 1,000 feet above the ground.
