Desert Daze

I love writing about the desert…mostly because every time I do, I have to question how to spell “desert”.. Then I remember the rule, “dessert has 2 s’s, because you want 2 pieces of pie for dessert”…mmmm…pie.

Anyway—I spent a weekend in Tucson at the beginning of February for work. I ventured out and enjoyed Saguaro National Park (4th year in a row, and I still love that place!), and wandered around the neighborhoods in Tucson. The colors there are so vibrant and beautiful…very reminiscent of our neighbors to the south.

Havasu

If the turquoise blue waters of Havasu Creek don’t knock your socks off, the size of Mooney Falls will (nearly 200 feet tall). The twinkling waters flow at a temperature of 70 degrees year-round, which is welcoming, even to a backpacker visiting in February. Be sure to check this place out for yourself and see how insane these falls are that flow into the Grand Canyon.

Arizona sure holds some amazing places.
