Current location, Tucson. Helen and I headed to Tucson to accomplish a few tasks and await the arrival of family; Carol, Kathy, Bonnie, and Caitlin. Before they arrived we had a day of rain, with time inside for reading and postcards. Family started flying in from Wisconsin on Friday and we moved into the timeshare.

To remind them of what they left behind, we went up to Mount Lemmon to see snow and walk among the rocks. It was a beautiful clear day and the views were great. From there we headed headed to the Eastern portion of the Saguaro National Park. Caitlin had a great time posing with the saguaro. Since the Gem and Mineral Show was on we went to a few tents and displays throughout the city. Some of the amythest catherdrals where taller than us and others were large enough to take a bath in. Tortuga does not have capacity to carry all the rocks we fell in love with. We did select several small fetishes and fossils.
