Mr n Mrs Zona (Kenneth n Laura from Arizona) Details: More to come ~ Laura - Welcome and pull up a seat. I moved to Amazing Arizona from Oregon via Colorado, I tend to be more of a scenic route taker. I am grateful to be a follower of Christ and am blessed to walk each day in his grace and love. I prefer the homemade touch because it always includes love as an ingredient and in the harshness that reality can bring to a person's life- there is always room for love. I enjoy writing and encouraging others in their Christian walk as well as people I just happened to meet. I believe in valuing the person in front of me at each moment of each day so if there is a need- let's address it right now and move forward towards the goal that we are called to- to love one another. I enjoy cooking although with my recent health issues that have forced me to retire due to short term memory issues from a TBI- some times I can get overwhelmed though. I am looking forward to learning how to make furniture, gardening and sewing. I would like to get back to painting again. My abilities have changed so I am in the midst of new discoveries. I enjoy photography- but honestly- usually forget to take pictures, so not my second nature by any means. A good cup of coffee, clean air and good company is my favorite recipe by far. ~ Kenneth - I am former New Yorker who has been transplanted to Amazing Arizona, I am Christ follower who has worn many hats through the years include being a Fire Fighter / Emergency Medical Technician who also worked on the side as Professional Photographer; I am currently medically retired due to a brain tumor that was removed in 2015. I have a photojournalist style of shooting and have been taking pictures of people, places and things for since the mid-1980's for private individuals, corporations, media publications. To me my creativity is a Gift from God, it is one of my emotions, I am blessed to be able to capture what I am able to see. More importantly, I am able to share my gift and all the beauty to be seen in our wonderful world. It truly would not be possible it if it were not for God's Grace for me to be able to share it with you. Thank you for stopping by and letting us be able to share some of us with you. Be Blessed. Home Town: Grand Canyon Junction, AZ Favorite Boondocking Locations: Just started ;-) Skills or Expertise to Share: ~ Kenneth - Well it is easier to say what I cant do. Really though the list is crazy and makes me sound like Forest Gump, I am a specialist at being diversified. If you need something done, If I cant help, I can tell you where to get it done. Some: Machinist, FFL 7/3, Fire suppression, Rescue techniques, Emergency Medicine / First aide, Vehicle and pump operations, mechanical skills: aircraft, vehicle, plumbing, electrical, carpentry, fluids. I excel at Cooking, I can sew, I can take pictures, I can make loud things go pop sortfly!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Little Heaven Ranch. It was a great location to visit The Grand Canyon and even in the summer we hardly had to turn our AC on. Deffinitly read all the info that is provided by the hosts. The only way in is definitely a rough (county maintained) road so take it slow, but if you mind your speed on that road I am sure you will have an amazing time.

    We loved the spot near Grand Canyon NP. It is really quiet and perfect for stargazing (milky way). The levelled spot is perfect on the way to or back from Grand Canyon NP. We loved the awesome view of the surroundings (high mountains, desert, wildlife), We would highly recommend this spot.

    We had a wonderful, quiet night at this spot after a day hiking around the Grand Canyon. As others have said, the dirt road was the biggest challenge, but really not too bad and so close to GCNP. Using the google pin took us right to the location, easy peasy! The night sky was wonderful.

    We happily landed @ Little Heaven Ranch after a long driving day—communications were great and we were able to let ourselves in and find our site —-a full moon and warm sunrise rounded off the stay— And so close to the Grand Canyon!!

    Hosts are very friendly and kind. We found the road was a bit rough and dusty. Great location near Grand Canyon. This was our first Harvest Host experience.
