Heading Back to Arizona

I applied to jobs with Xanterra again this in Crater lake, Zion and a job at the Grand Canyon. Well after finally filling out all the needed info on the website, I finally got a job offer at the Grand canyon 4 days later. Not the job I applied for but only took them 4 days to offer me a job. WOW, I have personally heard the HR staff tell people that it takes at least 4 weeks to hear anything; and it only took me 4 days. I guess I should look at thaat in a positive light. :) I start back to work there on July 16th. I am leaving Cooper Landing on July 2nd, to go spend a couple days in Anchorage and then I fly out to Phoenix on July 5th. My brother paid for the plane ticket and prices get jacked up after the 5th. So I'm trying to arrange a schedule to visit a friend in Prescott for a few days, and then spend a few days in Flagstaff and then maybe a couple days visiting another friend in Williams before I start work. Right now it's almost midnight in Alaska, but you can walk all around the yard without a flashlight. I love the fact that it doesn't really get dark here, but I also love the sunsets at the Grand canyon. But it gets so dark in Arizona after a sunset. I guess in order to enjoy a sunset I will have to tolerate the darkness again. There was a few things I had wanted to do at the canyon before and never gotten around to do them; guess I'm getting a second chance to check off more items on my bucket-list now.
