A Tale of Tucson ... pictorial edition

If you want the story, read the previous post. But I know what you really want ... pictures! Of course you're probably not as crazy about pictures of animals, cacti and mountains as I am - you want pictures of the human residents of Chez Rice Tucson. Too bad, you're getting all of it. Well not all of it ... I edited it down considerably. Here goes!
Max doesn't hide from me anymore! I absolutely love this cat.

Eddie ... best dog ever!

Kaylee loves her doggie!

Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Pork Chop?

Isn't this a great picture of Kaylee?

Choosing which trail to follow in Sabino Canyon.

Starting at mile zero ... wave to my shadow!

That sky ... the mountains ... Ryan, this is what the real ones look like.

Racheal and Kaylee, surrounded by the raw beauty of the dessert.

Our path. Which is really a road, but "path" sounds better.

Our surroundings as we walked.

I have no idea why, but the girl has a need to wear her socks on her hands.

Snack time!

Walking back.

Still walking back. There was a moment when I thought I might fall apart!

It was rainy. You really can't tell, but it was beautiful.

Kaylee reads.

I just love how Gabby looks in this picture.

How do you answer the question, "What's on TV tonight?"

Thank you so much for sharing your vacation with me.

I was in AZ a few years back and even though the trip was surrounded with anger and some really bad feelings, the one thing I do remember is the pure beauty. I was able to go to Mesa and visit the Church that is way up in the side of the Mt. The name escapes me right now but your stories and photos brought back the wonderful memories of that place.
I also took a stroll up the side of a Mt. (again the name is gone) and the higher we climbed the more beauty we were able to see.

Thank you again for sharing, it was a pleasure being on your vacation.

Oh, Colleeny ... I just love you! Thanks for enjoying my vacation. I know it can be like being forced to look at someone's slides; I'm glad you didn't think it sucked!
