Still unsure what you’re bringing your Thanksgiving host or hostess tomorrow? Skip the pumpkin pie, ditch the wine and forget the green-bean casserole. Instead, present them with the 100 Greatest Photographs to Ever Appear in Arizona Highways Magazine. From Navajo families and a Mohave girl to the splendor of the Grand Canyon and the grasslands of Southern Arizona, the 100 images that appear in these pages are the best to have ever been published in Arizona Highways, as chosen by Photo Editor Jeff Kida and Editor Robert Stieve. As Stieve writes, “In my mind, there was no golden era, just decades and decades of spectacular photography — one great shot after another.” This book celebrates those great shots, both old and new, and pays tribute to the men and women who made them.

You can pick up the 100 Greatest Photographs to Ever Appear in Arizona Highways Magazine at your neighborhood Costco or at the Arizona Highways gift shop, which is located at 2039 W. Lewis Avenue in Phoenix.

“In my mind, there was no golden era, just decades and decades of spectacular photography — one great shot after another.” — Robert Stieve

Not to worry; we have three very good ideas below:

Giving Back to the Firefighters…

Last week, some members of the Arizona Highways team went on a shopping spree at Costco… you see, like a lot of people, we wanted to show our support for the firefighters who are doing such a tremendous job protecting and saving our state.

“There’s nothing we can do to bring back the homes, the trees, the wildlife that have been lost in these devastating fires, but we can do a little something to help the folks in the fire zones weather the storms,” says Arizona Highways Editor Robert Stieve. “We have an incredible staff that contributed products and cash to the cause. A couple days ago, we took the money and made a trip to Costco.”

The Costco trip was especially meaningful because Robert and Managing Editor Kelly Kramer had just returned a few days earlier from a whirlwind trip to Springerville where they saw first hand some of the devastation caused by the Wallow Fire.

“After talking to the firefighters and witnessing the Wallow Fire firsthand, we knew that the least we could do was send up more water and snacks—they’re helping save Eastern Arizona communities and as much forest as they possibly can,” says Kelly.

As of today, the Wallow Fire has scorched over 519,000 acres and is 51% contained. Unfortunately, this isn’t the only fire our state has to contend with. Firefighters are also battling the Monument Fire, which has already consumed over 20,900 acres, while Horseshoe Two has charred over 213,500 acres.
