Photo: Arizona Cardinals Football Stadium
It is a magnificent facility, with a retractable dome and a a retractable field, so the natural grass can grow outside and then slide inside for games.
Officially, the stadium is named the University of Phoenix Stadium, but the University of Phoenix does not have a football team. It is a for-profit educational company, based in Phoenix, that paid for the naming rights for the stadium.
This is not a great photo, but please compare it with yesterday's photo and consider that it was taken from the same spot. This is a photo of a building about 25 miles (40 km) that is barely visible to the naked eye. And I did not use a tripod. This is a hand-held, quick photo from my office.
This week we have photos showing what a Grand Canyon rafting trip is like, focusing on the camping experience, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
