Kingman, Arizona

We spent the morning West of Tucson at Saguaro National Park and at the Sonoran Desert Museum. We couldn't believe how much greenery was growing in this formidable desert!

The Saguaro Cactus grew in abundant forests that boggled our minds!






















We stopped in Surprise to visit my dear sister, Norma and her husband Victor. Such gracious hosts. They have a lovely, welcoming, home, decorated with wonderful Navajo and Guatamalan art and artifacts. Their cultures blend as beautifully as their lives have.
It was so good to spend a few hours catching up.


We enjoyed a wonderful Mexican dinner with them before driving on to Kingman to spend the night.

I did not know that you took this trip. I have not been on this blog for a while. I don't know why I don't check things out more often. I am so thrilled to see the pictures of Norma and Victor. What a treat for you all to be together. It made me happy to see this. Love, Wendy

What?! No updates from the current Northeast trip. I didn't have this blog on my sage feeds, so I had to go find it. I thought for sure there would be a few posts for me to read. Darn!
