Cheryl's Photos

April 2010 - This April my husband and I vacationed in Tucson, Arizona. We visited many Tucson sites and I posted many pictures on my twitpic album. On this page are 14 that I liked. As you can see, we spent a lot of time in the Arizona desert, soaking up the sun.

I want to give a "special thanks" to Joel in Tucson who showed us around on our first afternoon.

Cactus Blooms

So many things are blooming in Arizona right now!

We visited a cactus nursery (top) and I spotted the orange blooms at the San Xavier Mission, south of Tucson.
