Welcome to Arizona!

My first full day in Arizona began as I was driven out of the Tucson city limits and towards Panther Peak and below it, White Stallion Ranch. dsc01660

The scenery was like nothing I have ever seen first hand and the cacti were absolutely massive. I was told that a cactus will not grow any ‘arms’ until it is at least 70 years old!

After a lovely afternoon ride to a picnic spot, we stopped for some cheese and wine before returning to the ranch. After dinner we had a live show from the cowboy himself, Loop Rawlins! He was fantastic with this gun and rope tricks.

After a long day and tiring day from yesterday’s travelling, I returned to my lovely room (this is a deluxe queen/twin) for a good night’s sleep.
