A Weekend in Tubac

Morgen and I spent the weekend in Tubac and Tucson, Arizona, just north of the Mexican border. We saw the progress of construction on her parents’ new house, went on a three-hour jeep ride through the desert and generally enjoyed the warm temperatures and sunshine. Here are a few images, with explanation, of what we were up to all weekend.

We spent our first afternoon at the High Desert Museum just outside Tucson

On Sunday we took a jeep ride into the desert. Here, Uschi keeps hydrated

A massive saguaro cactus. It takes at least 60 years before the first arm sprouts.
