Itinerary for spring around Phoenix 2009
Day 1: March 18
The Superstition Mountains
I am in Apache Junction, part of the sprawling suburbs that make up the Phoenix area. It is 89 and sunny. There are palm trees and the tops of the Superstition Mountains within view. All of which make this a very good place to be at the moment.
After happy hour on the neighbor’s patio, Dad and I are off to photograph the mountains from another angle. . .
Day 2: March 19
The Desert at Sunrise
Day 3: March 20
Day 4: Around Phoenix (March 21)
Day 5: The Single Best Thing at the Zoo (March 22)
It’s not that there weren’t other worthwhile things at the Phoenix Zoo, but these guys were my favorites:
Every time a turtle tries to get on or off, the whole log rocks from side-to-side, leaving the remaining turtles hanging on by their toe nails. You can almost see the effort going into just staying put. (So much for a lazy nap in the sun!)
It is endlessly entertaining.
