We ventured out to Tucson today to pick up Laurel’s mom from the Airport. The weather was nice for driving, cloudy at the campground but we emerged before we got to Tucson. We met a very nice gentleman at the airport as we were waiting who has eight children.
After picking up grandma, we started heading back to Huachuca City. We had packed food for lunch and decided to hit a park to eat. The first sign I saw was for Saguaro National Park, just east of Tucson. What a treasure!
We ate, we climbed, we walked trails and drove an eight mile loop through a forest of cacti.
It was awesome to see all the different varieties of cactus in one place. The kids have a listing somewhere that tell us the names of all of these and I will have to learn them at some point.
We came across this monster on our drive and had to get close up and take a picture.
We will definitely be going back.
We arrived back at the RV park at around 4:30 to find a box of oranges and a note on our step. Our friend John had made us some supper! We had a wonderful meal of meatloaf, potatoes and green beans, not to mention great company!
