Happy Birthday, Arizona

Not only is today Valentine's Day, it's also Arizona's 99th birthday. President Taft officially made The Grand Canyon State the 48th in the Union on Feb. 14, 1912. Feb. 12 was originally slated as our first day as a state, but it conflicted with Lincoln's birthday.

I don't know why, but this picture looks like a perfect metaphor for Arizona's 99th birthday. I like it.
