Our destination Tucson, Arizona. Gary has been wanting to see the Saguaro Cactus and boy did we hit paydirt. Tucson has millions of them and they are wonderful specimens, really tall with many arms.
Tucson is a very nice city, very dry and barren but the houses really fit into the environment and all their surrounds are various forms of cacti, looks great. This is a big university town, so again young people everywhere and lots of quirky shops and funky cafes and bars. It is freezing though, we cant believe we are so far south and still snow on the mountains. The locals say it is a record cold snap 5 straight days of freezing temps. Am glad its temporary, one week ago we were in the warmth of Florida, crazy!!!!!
