The Road to Tucson



With a forecast of sunny skies and temps between 60s and 90s Farenheit we didn't pack more than one sweater each. That one sweater was the only thing protecting us from the cool morning air ripping through our mesh jackets. Brrrr! (When you live in the Arizona Desert, 50s is cold.)




The Catalinas still have snow.




We stopped in Tucson for food and fuel. We tossed our Subway sandwiches in the side bags and struck out west of town into the Tucson Mountain Park.


Gates Pass


Our New Home for the Night.


Matt's longest day yet. It's only noon, we will add another 25 or so miles today. More than 200 miles for a 9 year old.


We quickly set up camp and scarf down the sandwiches.


The Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum is just down the road...
