  1. I still love the feel of a good black and white photograph …

  2. I love this picture, but I’m really interested in what the script at the bottom says. “An odyssey of the ___ and Colorado.” Do you know what the word after the is? I can’t really make it out. It looks like it says green, but I’m not sure.

      Hi There, A comment about this cover is posted on AZ Highways FB page: Hi folks. Sometimes these old issues don’t include specific information about cover location. That said, the cover story was about the Colorado and Green rivers, so we’re guessing this is a shot from the Colorado. Interestingly, the story was authored by Barry Goldwater.

    Where is this?

    It is “Green” – It’s from the Barry Goldwater article in the issue about his summer 1940 trip from Green River, Utah to Lake Mead in 3 boats supplied by Norm Nevills down the Green & Colorado rivers. It looks like the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon looking upstream from an area near Granite Rapids or Hermit Rapids.

    For the full story, check out the book “Delightful Journey: Down the Green and Colorado Rivers” by Barry Goldwater from one of the Phoenix Public Libraries. It’s a day-by-day diary with more full-page photos from the trip. A very nice blast from the past!

  6. Although most guides will inform you strategies of choosing up girls
    and they say that you are not ready to be successful all the time but when youu invite ten girls yoou may possibly succeed
    with two or 3. She is also giver and for her sex is special,
    something she can’t give to anyone. The best seductions I’ve evver done were always the ones where I made a critical error.
