A couple of days ago, my sister and I took a road trip.
Taking the back roads from Phoenix to Tucson, we drove through a variety of terrain.
We traversed parts of the Gila River Indian Reservation. Dry dirt. Dry land.
Lovely colors of yellow and dusty pink along the road edges.
And then we met up with the Saguaros.
Further on down the road we stopped at the. Tom Mix memorial. A film star in the early 1900’s, he died in a car accident on this spot. The monument was erected to ensure he would not be forgotten.
A short drive down this road, and a quick left turn, we arrived at my brother and sister-in-law’s home.
My brother suggested we drive a short way to SculptureTucson, a non-profit for the promotion of sculpture in Tucson and Southern Arizona.
On exhibit were fourteen large scale sculptures by Rotraut, a German-French visual artist. It was 90 degrees, but we didn’t notice as we walked around these stunning sculptures.
Okay, we DID notice the heat. Still, it was great fun!
We ended the day feasting on Kris’ famous tacos. Yum!
