Live in 9, Missing 1

Here in West Phoenix, Dr Desert Flower and I live in a zone 9.  I went to school in a zone 6 or so, and used to camp (as a kid) in zone 3 from time to time.  I miss seeing skies like zone 1.  When we've driven from San Diego to Phoenix, and we're out in the middle of the Sonoran desert hours after dusk, or on the Grand Canyon's south rim about 30 miles west of the National Park's entrance, we've seen zone 1.  It is amazing, and takes my breath away a little bit each time I first behold it. 

I am looking forward to visiting the Rocky Mountains again.
