Get “Uncaged” from Arizona!

Feeling trapped in the Arizona desertThis is just a friendly reminder that there
are places outside of the boundaries of Arizona…





Get Uncaged from Arizona

Gonna lift to the great wide open

Wanna set my spirit free

Get Uncaged from Arizona

Won’t stop till I reach the ocean

Gonna break these chains holding me



Get Uncaged from Arizona!

Gonna swim in the coldest river

Gonna drink from a mountain spring

Deep in the land of the great wide open

Let the water roll all over me

Uncage from Arizona!Uncaged

Oh, wanna swim in the sunshine
And every day find a way to face my fears
Oh, wanna get in the wind

Get Uncaged from Arizona!

Gonna take every chance I’m given

Feel the wind through the open plains
Freedom is a gift, get livin’

Get Uncaged from Arizona!Go chase that sunset highway down
You got to get uncaged!

This Or That: Lakes!

Introducing “This Or That”

In “This Or That” articles, I will post photos highlighting features and characteristics of Arizona. The Arizona photos will be followed by a second photo showing the alternative to Arizona on the same topic. These will not be wordy articles (except for this one), and will only have photos asking you, “This or that?”

It is my hopes you will find these photos inspirational and assist you with looking beyond the distant Arizona horizon.
