It's snowing here on the Mexican Border on April 23rd, I had to turn the heat back on.
Two trips to Phoenix this month wound up getting stuck in traffic for hours both times. Spent over an hour stuck in traffic in Sedona earlier in the month. Face it Arizona is overcrowded, LA without the Ocean.

So your experience in Phoenix and Sedona leads you to believe all of Arizona is crowded? That's funny.

Let me get this straight. You claim you've been all over Arizona, and you say Arizona is too crowded. Mod Cut: Post referring to edited.

That's why I am considering leaving. The congestion and crush of people in Phoenix, at least, is just tiring. I've been here a long time too. Started out in Tucson and came to Phoenix when it was under a million. I guess for me it is a combination of wanting change and discovery in my life, even as I get older, and being fed up to my eyeballs with crowded streets and red lights.

I used to not mind the distances involved in getting away from it all into the high country. But I do today and often when I get to the high country, it is crowded too. That just takes the enjoyment right out of it - Phoenix shifted north. There was a time here when you could go to a rim lake during the week and be the only one fishing there, not every time but every once in a while. Or, you could camp along the north Rim of the Canyon and be all alone for days. Those days are long gone and the love of AZ I had in my youth went with them.

I came here (was transfered to Ft. Huachuca) in 1973, discharged shortly thereafter, attended UofA, and got a job in Phx in mid-70s,
