Definitely not Arizona
This is definitely not Arizona. Our canals are not quite as picturesque. If you saw the last picture, you can guess that this is Pennsylvania near the Delaware River. It is next to the Washington Crossing Historic Park. I am always struck by the contrast between the East Coast and the desert Southwest. What made my ancestors leave this beautiful verdant country to travel to the barren deserts of Arizona? If you ever need a more graphic example of the faith of my pioneer ancestors, just look at this picture of a canal in Mesa.
