Travels, Day 8, On The Way To Guatemala

Mom continues her travelogue:
Date: 6-26-72
Place: Tucson, Arizona
"We drove most of the day - saw lots of cactus - took pictures of [Homer-Dog] and me by our favorite cactus. We visited Casa Grande Indian ruins - Really not too good but not bad either. We drove to the trailer park, ate supper + went swimming in the pool. All enjoyed swimming, diving + playing tag. After dark we drove up to 'A' mountain and viewed the city lights. Tucson is a beautiful city - modern - relaxing. Was 98° today but dryness makes it feel not too bad."

We remember the strangest things sometimes. I remember getting my picture taken in front of a large saguaro cactus. It's still one of my favorite cacti.

Like Mom, Casa Grande must not have impressed me much. When I visited it in 1998 with the Wife I didn't remember being there before. It didn't impress me that time either as I didn't even mention it in my write up of that vacation.

Tucson didn't rank in my memories. This is sad as I've always liked the glow of city lights.


  1. GH: I think I do actually but I'm not sure I will ever post it.
