"But it's a dry heat!"

May 30, 2013 - Phoenix, Arizona, United States

 We continued our windy and dusty trek through America's southwest. In Arizona we abondoned the interstate for a while to take a local road that we traveled last year. We revisited the site of Tom Mix's departure from this world. For the younger readers, Tom Mix was America's movie cowboy before John Wayne.

This part of the desert is quite different than the parts through Texas, New Mexico and eastern Arizona. Here the giant saguaro were in bloom along with other cacti. In Mesa we had a short visit with Niece Hallie and family; Jason, Hannah and Jaxon. Because of schedule we are not taking as many side trips as last year. (See www.fuzzytravel.com/mccauley for last year's magical mystery tour.) But we expect to explore new areas on the way home after visiting with daughter Jessica in LA.

You guys have been putting in some long driving days. We figure the legs of your trip are about 600 miles / 8-9 hours. Hope there are good margaritas to go with that great looking Mexican foot that was pictured.

Is there any place where you guys don't find an Irish pub?

Everyone ought to see a "forest" of saguaro cacti at least once in their lifetime! Aren't they amazing! I'm excited that you got to see them blooming - fantastic! I love hearing the details of your trip.
