Yesterday our big event was to use a “pay ten bucks and get $20 worth of pizza and beer" coupon at Nimbus Brewery, one of four microbreweries in Tucson.
Today we got more active and did a five mile hike in Saguaro National Park. (So I'm feeling better, Mom.)
Both days were lovely.

|I like this shot of a dead Saguaro next to a living one because it shows the "ribs" that make up the inside of the plant --- and that also make great hiking sticks.|

|Wow! A double crested Saguaro. The top split in two and each section crested -- plus arms grew up on the sides and behind it. Two more photos are below.|
