Postcard Facts:

Gambel's Quail - Found Primarily throughout Mexico, this species also stretches into the American Southwest, and is the most popular game bird in Arizona.

Picacho Peak State Park - Spring in the Sonoran Desert brings an abundance of wildflowers, including Mexican gold poppies, brittlebush, and lupine. These wildflowers germinate only after heavy seasonal rains, and once pollinated, their heat - and drought- resistance seeds are dispersed by wind, which then remain dormant in the soil until the following year's annual rains.

Arizona - Arizona is blessed with bright sunshine and fantastic weather year-round. You'll find endless places to fish, swim, run, pedal, paddle or to just sit and be amazed!

Arizona - Arizona became the 48th state on February 14, 1912, and is the sixth largest state in the U.S. at 114,006 square miles. The state also carries the distinction of leading the nation in copper production.

So many wonderful facts about Arizona thank you so much Pat & John!
