Oh Lordy. . .the weekend has not been filled with our best tourist moments. . .
which we can only attribute to our own selves. . .and for no other reason. . .really!
With high winds for three days, Mt Lemmon has been put on a back burner. . .
we were warned by friends that driving up it in the wind is NOT the thing to be doing. . .
okay. . .so Saturday morning, in revamping mode and while I’m busy
doing other things, Dave researches the Scenic Drive through some Box Canyon. . .
looks great. . .off we go. . .problem being. . .after the initial Scenic Drive Sign
off the freeway. . .we NEVER SAW another one. . .so we missed the turn. . .
and drove, and drove, and drove. . .oh my word. . .
this is the prettiest thing we saw all day. . .and while beautiful,
just not the box canyon we thought we were going to explore and hike. . .
by the time we turned around, got back to the border check point. . .
ask the Border Patrol Officer where the turn off was. . .
discovered it was a rough, gravel road. . .well. . .we were just out of the mood. . .
wah wah wah. . .back home we go. . .
ahhh. . .but this morning helped revive the old spirits. . .
Sunday Morning Worship Service with the folks at
Faith Tabernacle – Tucson. . .
really though. . .how are you supposed to pay attention to what anyone is saying. . .
when God’s splendor is just spread out right there in the background. . .lovely!
Sabino Canyon, which was on our list was only 12 minutes from the church,
so we brought some stuff to change into. . .went and had lunch. . .
and headed over there. . .
paid our $8 each to ride the tram. . .best decision ever.
We might could hike down into the canyon. . .
but I have my very serious doubts we would ever make it back out. . .LOL!
it was a very comfortable, but overcast day. . .
our pics do not even begin to give justice
to what a really pretty place this is. . .
so I will leave you with just this one. . .
and our very first sighting of a Crested Saguaro Cactus
that the tour guide pointed out to us. . .
We were excited about that. . .
Only a couple more days are left here in Tucson. . .
still plenty to try and see. . .not sure what’s next. . .
I do know the dreaded grocery shopping
must be fitted in there somewhere. . .
See you there. . .whatever it is. . .
