Arizona | Travel March 2014

This month started off for me with an amazing vacation in Arizona.  I am very grateful for a wonderful friend that invited me to join for a week of her vacation and my kind, understanding husband to let me go!!  It was the perfect mix of exploring + sightseeing and relaxing poolside + enjoying the beautiful farm where we stayed.  I love the desert scenery!  I would wake up in the morning and look out to palm trees, cactuses and the pretty mountains beyond.  Having only seen photos of saguaro cactus before this trip, it was really neat to see so many as we toured around.  The weather was great and the company I was in was superb!  It was a week filled with special, happy and fun times that I will cherish!!

We spent a morning learning about butterflies and observing them.  The colors and detailed patterns are fantastic!

 The natural rock formations throughout Phoenix are really cool.  We had a lovely morning hike up this rock.

Nearly every morning started with a walk around the farm and thru the barns.

This was random and interesting!  A pet camel that we met one day when it was out for a walk.
