I have a cousin who lives in Tucson.
He was whining to me the other day about it being a 'cool 55 with rain' !!

Haaaa ! Tucson is my home town.

In his defense though, when it rains here, it pours. This is a riverbed, normally dry, the day after a one day rain last week. Water is about six feet deep in the center.

I hope to visit Payson and Tucson in the not to distant future. We're on lazy search to find some place warmer to live.

Payson is beautiful country as is the Verde Valley from Sedona to Camp Verde.

If you travel to the area and are a history buff of the west, make some time to tour the Fort Verde State Park in Camp Verde. This was the Fort that settled the area and is a really interesting museum that includes the original Company Headquarters, C/Os residence, Field Physician and officers residences, etc. Well worth the time. (and I can give you a great place to eat if you like Mexican food, and another one that the food is OK, but the margaritas are the best around).

There is also a very nice campground in Camp Verde, Distant Drums, that I stay at when I am going to Moab.

We've been talking about the 45-70, the pict below is from the Museum.

Pictures I've seen it's bit like some of the semi dryer areas of Oregon not where it is wet on West side of the Cascades and high desert far east.

About year and 1/2 ago we spent a bunch of time in Prescott, Cottonwood and Sedona. Really liked Sedona, but the weekend tourist traffic up from Phoenix pretty much choked up the roads.
