The dogs miss Arizona. They were able to run free in the desert.
The people miss Arizona. They were able to explore cactus (bullet holes in cactus were, unfortunately, quite common),
dead dried things (I'll spare you my many photos that fall into this category),
abandoned mines (not as sketchy as it sounds),
Christmas (see Mingus?),
and Castle Dome Peak (the boy did a write up about our hike).
I had no expectations for the desert, and I am happy to report that there was never a dull moment! It's a great place to be outdoors, during the winter at least. Get me out of there when the temperature reaches over 90 degrees F!
