Photo: U.S. Senator Jeff Flake, and Arizona Roots
Senator Flake is very thoughtful. He also has a quick, charming and self-deprecating sense of humor. His family has deep roots in Arizona. The town of Snowflake up on the Mogollon Rim in northeastern was named after the Snow family and the Flake family.
As with many ranching families whose ancestors settled in northeastern Arizona in the late 1800's, my family is distantly related to the Flake family. The same is true with the Udall family, which has contributed distinguished public servants to Arizona and the nation, such as former Congressman and Presidential candidate Morris Udall and his brother, former Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall.
This week we have photos of the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
