      There are a lot of people out there looking for earlier Arizona Highways issues… consider selling on Craigslist.

  4. The magazine has really declined over the past five years into little more than a photography magazine. I love the pix, but I miss the stories, the humor sections, the history, etc.

    • Thank you for your input Mr Pouwels. That said, I hope you’ll reconsider your statement. Each month, with the exception of December, our feature well is full of stories that reflect the history, culture and natural beauty of Arizona. What’s more, the entire Journal section of the magazine is dedicated to the written word. There, we publish a history story each month, in addition to stories intended to drive people to and across Arizona — and those stories speak directly to our mission. Certainly, world-class photography has long been synonymous with Arizona Highways, but our editorial content has never wavered.

    Hi Robert,
    Are you related to Marie Stieve? If so I send my condolences. She was my mother’s cousin by marriage and I just saw her obituary. My mother’s brother was also named Robert Stieve. I only met Marie a few times but I remember her as a very nice lady. She told me about her sister who taught music at SMU when I was getting ready to start college as a music major (many years ago).

    Thankfully for your awesome job and magazine!

  7. In the March 2012 issue, you said you’d love to see our own photos on your Flickr gallery. How does one post images from our Flickr page to Arizona Highways?

  9. Robert, I’m excited about the Feb. Iconic Issue! Can you tell me if there are any Page Lake Powell landmarks listed? if so, I’ll push the issue on our FB & Twitter pages.

  10. Hi Robert,

    How does one find out about the Friday Photos theme in advance? I’d like to submit photos.

    Robert, back in the 1990’s–pre digital & social media, I would see the same group of photographers photos always featured in the hardcopy magazine. I, myself, attempted several times to submit photos and never got accepted. I am glad to see that is a wider group of people posting photos as it offers a greater thru the lens perspective of Arizona than just the same select few.

    Robert Stieve just spoke to our The Sedona Women group and was by far the most candid and entertaining speaker I have seen! His humorous insights and brilliantly presented historic photos of Sedona – featured in Arizona Highways Magazines – kept all of us entertained, riveted and enthralled.

    Sir. Enjoying n using your beautiful mag for at 20 r more years. Will continue. I’ve shared remarks, sent photos of my watercolors AND sent a disc with a number of excellent examples of work. All these were inspired by the phenomenal photos from AZ HWY. Once
    I was sent a reply the just of what u said was
    this looks like a photo used in our magazine-iI painted from the same photo sir.
    A gentleman passed. I believe his wife wrote to you. You published his painting in letters to the editor. Later there was an artist u featured on
    the front cover. That is a high honor. I applaud the talented artist.
    If you to my older letter ( hope u still have it) you will see what I expect. Sir, please review my work and you will find I am a worth n talented watercolors. Thanks. T Pat McNeil

    Dear Mr. Stieve,
    My brother, Bruce Crozier, was lost in the Mogollon Rim Country in 1939 for seven days and six nights and he was 7 years old. I think his story is worthy of an article in Arizona Highways. He is an AZ native having been born in Winslow and he at 87 is still living in Flagstaff. There are news articles from the NY Times and newspapers from all over the country and even Britain.
    Feel free to contact me or him.
    Marcia Crozier Corbett
