Ack! I went a whole month without blogging! Well, it's not because I wasn't doing anything interesting, that's for sure.
Sonora Desert Museum where we saw some friendly little critters who were happy to pose for pictures. We also spent a few hours at Old Tucson Studios, where I went as a kid when we would go out to visit family.
Meteor Crater (no "the!") on our way out to Canyon de Chelly (pronounced "shay"). If it hadn't been for the stop at Meteor Crater, it would have been a 4.5 hour drive of nothing (pretty nothing . . .) but then again Meteor Crater is just a big hole, so it pretty much was anyway. At Canyon de Chelly we hiked down to the bottom to see the White House Ruins. It was a really nice hike, even though it was only in the mid-30's.
Petrified Forest, then down to Scottsdale, our final stop.
We spent 3 nights and 2 full days in Scottsdale. We visited Taliesin West (Frank Lloyd Wright's home and teaching campus) and went on a great gallery tour around the town. On the second day, we ventured over to Phoenix and checked out the Heard Museum of Native American Art and the Phoenix Art Museum, both of which we loved.
I will try to do another post or two on the trip, specifically about the art in Phoenix and Scottsdale, when I feel up to it. For now, just enjoy the pictures!
