Trip from Las Cruces, NM to Tucson, AZ

We were up early and on the road about 9:00 this morning on our way to Tucson, AZ for a couple of nights. We wanted to try to spend some time with Mac’s aunt Vernis. She is Mac’s dad’s sister and she is 92 years young.

Our trip today was pretty easy with only 272 miles.

The scenery was very breathtaking….here are some photos of what we saw out of our windshield….

of course we had to pass through the Border Checkpoint …lol

These are just a few photos of the awesome countryside that we passed by and drove over today.

We arrived at Justin’s Diamond J RV Park about 3:00 and got all set up. Mac called his aunt Vernis to let her know that we were here and would be over shortly to see her.

We arrived at her apartment. The Senior Complex that she lives in is very nice. She had let them know that we would be there and were going to join her for dinner. We went over to the dining room about 5:30  and had dinner and  we had Boy & Girl Scouts sing Christmas Carols.

After the carols were over we went back to Vernis’ apartment to visit for awhile. We left about 9:45 came back to the RV.

We will go back to see her again tomorrow. She is wanting us to have dinner with her again.

We may try to drive through the Saguaro National Park sometime tomorrow and Mac would like to go to the Airplane Graveyard, so we will see what we can accomplish before dinner time.

Wednesday, Mac and I will celebrate our 26th Anniversary….it is so hard to believe that 26 years have passed by so quickly….and God willing we will be able to celebrate many more…

Stay tuned for more adventures here in Tucson.

I didn't have any luck getting on the schedule to go thru the actual military grave yard. But, I really enjoyed going to the Pima Air and Space Museum. You don't have to walk the back lot where all the planes are parked outside, as they have a shuttle that you can ride. The driver goes from plane to plane, and explains each one as you ride along. This cost a little more than the basic admission but was well worth it. Once it is over, if you have a special plane you want to go be up close and personal with, you are free to walk back to it.
Its a don't miss kind of thing while in Tucson!
