One of the highlights of our vacation was the day trip to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. We planned a half day visit and did spend a large portion of the day in this beautiful desert. And the drive to get there was just as interesting as well and I promise to tell that story in another post. Any trip that involves back roads tends to invite a bit of intrigue, especially at those small town Circle K’s or Seven Elevens.

Visits midweek result in a more enjoyable day since there are fewer people. Although there are busloads of students from various schools on fieldtrips but for the most part, it was easy to see every exhibit without fussing with long lines and large groups. Besides, you better watch out for those Chollos. They do reach out and grab you if you are not careful.

The Sonoran desert is quite enchanting. My mind drifted into a very peaceful place and I forgot all else and really could have cared less if I remembered my name.

Allow the ocotillo to wave it’s long wand-like branches to rename you and the wind to teach you to sing.
