|Our patio view every night!|
Our time here in Tucson is coming to an end. Tomorrow is travel day. Destination...The Grand Canyon. Thanks Merikay from Merikay's Dream for all the great post about the Canyon. We have never been!
It's for sure our pups will really miss Lazydays. They love the doggie park here. They take us there every morning and insist we play ball!
This past week, Jack has been up extra early to enjoy the park before it gets really hot! We think he's cute and we know he is way smart! He and Wrecks both love to drink lots of water.
Sally has no trouble at all finding a shady place to guard the gate. She has become the official welcoming committee of one!
After a job well done, the water bowl calls her name so she "mozies" on over for a sip before reclaiming her spot in the shade.
Dover is always busy! From the beginning of our stay, she began burying her toys! Everyday when we called "Time to go!", she found just the right spot...and would dig...
...and dig...and dig...
...and dig. She dropped in her toy. Then she covered...and covered...
|...until she was satisfied. Only then, could we go home! The next day, sure nuff...she digs up her toy until time to leave!|
The road through Gates Pass was started in 1883 by Thomas Gates. He wanted a shortcut through the Tucson Mountains. Thomas Gates was a local pioneer, and a saloon keeper. He purchased this land in order to build the road.
Currently, about 3100 cars travel the scenic road daily.
Parking on Gates Pass is limited to several "pull-outs". We chose the spot at the David Yetman hiking trail. Once parked we hiked a short way...didn't want to have too far to get back to the car after dark.
Isn't the hedgehog bloom pretty in the sun's light? I didn't alter the photo at all. What do you think?
The picture on the right was taken about 30 minutes before sunset.
From that time till sunset, it was just pure beauty! How do you ever pick just a few of these pictures to share? I'm having a really hard time with that!
The oranges and yellows fill the sky as the sun slowly sets!
We have had a great time in the desert.
Thanks for stopping by!
Y'all come back!
