Who knew the desert was this beautiful?? I've been to Arizona before, but I don't recall ever really noticing the scenery. The kids and I had a lot of time to explore the desert, and we were all happily amazed at all the different varieties of cacti, the vastness of the desert forest, and at the life that exists among all these prickly things.
And on our way home, Craig and the kids toured Biosphere 2 while I stayed out on the cafe patio and enjoyed the wisteria and the desert mountain breeze.
We all concluded that Arizona is a pretty perfect place to be in the spring. The weather was perfect for our entire trip and we absolutely loved seeing scenery that it SO very different from anything we've ever seen before. Isn't the earth such an amazing place to live??
