tucson skylineWe have visited the Tucson area before, especially the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.  At the end of a hard day of driving, we decided to pull into a KOA RV resort we had stayed in the previous year. As a matter of fact, I think we might have been parked in the same spot before, right between an olive tree and a lemon tree.

Tucson sunsetThis resort features 2 pools and hot tubs, a cantina/bar and a very relaxed vibe.  It was just the thing I wanted after many days of driving.  The sun was hot and the skies were clear.  It was such a lovely setting that we stayed for 2 nights just to recharge our batteries. We met some great people who were visiting for as long as 6 months.  They loved this location so much they returned year after year.

saguaro cactusWe never did tour Tucson as we had planned.  I guess that will be for another time.  But I must say that the surrounding mountains are colourful and the saguaro cacti are the friendliest.  Those are the ones that look like they have arms.  I feel like they are always waiving at me.  Love those!
