AZ bigfoot (kinda) -- the Mogollon Monster. Hadn't thought of that in a long time. Thanks!

There still are places like you remember, but they are a farther drive from Phoenix. An extra couple of hours of driving does wonders to get you away from development and the so-called "cabins" built in neat subdivisions.

It's true that Flagstaff, Prescott and Payson have changed dramatically. I'm surprised you didn't mention Show Low and Pinetop-Lakeside. Those towns used to be separate and distinct communities. And don't get me started about how great Sedona used to be. That place, sadly, is gone forever.

Fortunately there are great places in Eastern and Southern Arizona that haven't been colonized yet. Most people from Phoenix, and especially Scottsdale, turn up their noses when you mention Pima, Cochise and Santa Cruz counties. To keep these places special, I hope they keep doing so.
