The Desert

After visiting the Grand Canyon, we headed south into the desert and warmer weather.  image046We camped at Lost Dutchman State park outside of Flagstaff.  The weather was beautiful and we cooked out on the grill.   Our camp site included a very large cactus and we had an unexpected visitor….a tarantula!image001

For the weekend, we headed to Tucson to stay with our friend Estelle.  We visited the Tucson sights and took a nice hike.  While we loved the weather and Tucson and visiting Estelle, we needed to hit the road again.  Sunday we headed down to Tombstone.  We were excited to see the old west town, but sad to see it was mostly an expensive tourist trap, so we headed to New Mexico.  We are camping in Deming, NM today and will head to White Sands National monument tomorrow.  image044

    Hmm, not too sure about your unexpected vistor! He looks nice enough though. What did the dogs think about him? I hope you both are having a good time!
