Did you know the Flintstones were based in Arizona? Neither did I, until we passed this Flintstones Campground on the way to the Grand Canyon.
I would have loved this as a kid. Actually it was kind of appealing as an adult too, but not after four hours touring the Canyon.
I'm thinking the Buffalo Lodge was the reason for all the pickup trucks...
...but maybe they were buying film.
Rock Vegas or Bust, baby!
A few more pictures are on my Flickr site.

Last week, ComicsDC visited Arizona, and I'll put on my ComicsAZ guise for a few posts this week.
The above photograph refers to Krazy Kat's home in Coconino County of course. We didn't spot the Kat even though we drove through the county several times.
This cartoon by Bil Keane hangs in my cousin's house. He came in for something when she was running a print shop and did this drawing for her two children. She says she currently has a retired Disney animator for a neighbor - I'll try to get more details.
