We left to go to the Pima Air space Museum Tucson which holds over 300 airplanes including a space gallery. We spent over 2 hours walking around the hangars and outside in the desert. Every piece of american history is a reflection of all of those aircraft used in World War II bombers to now. We didn't get to see everything, too tired to walk any further. It was well worth the time to see this. We then drove over to see what they call the Bone grave yard where there ...

... I was greeted with a fantastic view of the sun setting over the Tucson area as well as two bars for my phone. After contacting Jennifer to let let her know all was well I finally felt like I could sit and relax so I took off my boots and sat on a large rock that was mostly buried in the earth. It was great to get the boots off and to lay down and just listen to silence. I swear I could still hear whispers of the city though. Just a bit of the rumble that ...
