Just a real quick post today -- the weather and company is too awesome for me to be on my computer!!  I am sitting here in shorts at 8:45 p.m.!!  Absolutely gorgeous day in Tucson -- probably close to 80 degrees.  We flew in at 10 a.m. (been up since 2:30 a.m. this morning), and my brother picked us up at the Tucson airport in his motor home.  We are spending a couple of days in Bensen, Arizona (about 30 miles from Tucson), at the Kartchner Caverns State Park.  We did a little hiking today, but saving our strength for some long-distance hiking trails and the caverns tomorrow.  Of course, we don't know yet if there are any tickets available for tomorrow.  Today was sold out. 

Here is a picture of the view in front of our campsite (actually these mountains surround us).  I should have waited to get the sunset, but not sure if I will stay awake that long!!

Not a great picture, but this surrounds the whole campground.

Just before take-off this morning from Detroit, Michigan.  My sisters are not real happy because neither one likes to fly (Kathy has never flown before, but loved it after about 10 minutes in the air).
That's all for today.  I'll be checking back in soon.


  1. OMG, Sandi, great pictures. Did You use your phone camera or the digital? We are suppose to get into the mid 70's tomorrow. See what happens when you go to warmer weather. Tell everyone I said "Hi". Love you all.

  2. Looks like great fun. Wish I was there.

  3. OMG Thanks for sharing your trip. Memories for me as I lived in Arizona my high school & young married life. Love Montezuma Castle & was fortunate to not only go when I was age 12 but also took our 2 children & played around
    inside castle. I think sometime later didn't they stop tourist from touching due to erosion? Been to Jerome too. OK hung out in alot of gorgeous places while in Arizona. Our son was born in Phoenix 1969.
