Tucson, Arizona is located 2,467 feet above sea level. The city is located at 32.23 degrees north latitude and 110.92 degrees west longitude. Like all desert climates, cooling can be quite dramatic during the evening and night hours, especially as late fall and winter approaches. Tucson is no exception and this week the evening temperature has dipped down into the 30's with frost warnings. With that, flowers and herbs have needed to be covered most evenings. An added enjoyment, however has been gearing up using my outside jacuzzi. With the low light ordinance in Tucson (due to observatories) shooting stars, and even space stations are quite prominent as they move across the sky.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
