Just Got Back from Saguaro National Park

Saguaro National Park is just west of our villa. Thousands of giant cacti are holding a convention there and they all have their hands up.

Nearby is Old Tucson - an old desert village that is used as a movie set for many pictures. John Wayne worked here. Also The Three Amigos was filmed here.

The last time we visited this national park was 1994. It reminds me of some of the good times we had with our boys on our travels. We bought matching desert hats here to hike down into the Grand Canyon. We seldom agreed on what was cool clothing - but on that trip we seemed to be on the same page. Funny - but some of the most memorable times we had were on trips when Lulu was teaching summer school - Arizona - North Carolina - Georgia - Hawaii - Florida - London. These are things that go through your mind when you are staring into the sunset in Arizona.
