Cactus Forest 2017-1-10
We went east of Tucson to Saguaro National Forest. I didn't realize cacti in large numbers were called a forest. Cacti forests are cool.

After the Saguaro Forest we decided to drive up and see what is up in the Catalina Mountains. There is a little town up there with lots of snow. All the desert folk come up and play about in the snow. There are snowmen on every corner and people sledding on every hill.

Michelle later played near the Saguaro Forest at Saguaro Corners. The staff and customers were all great and got into the show. Hopefully we play there again some day.

I didn't take much pictures but we met up with Rick and Jill Morley in Phoenix, some friends from back in South Dakota. They were staying at a campground on a giant gun range.
Phoenix seems much nicer so far.
