The city of Tucson has spread north to the state park where we are camped and a mall is right across the street. This weekend it hosted at art fair. We love to go to art fairs and see what creative people come up with to tempt us to part with our dollars. This one had quality stuff and much of it had the southwestern look we would expect around here. There was lots of great jewelry for sale - no surprise now that we've been to the gem & mineral show.
We hiked another canyon and were surprised to find water once again. The lush green grass was a clue that water was nearby and deciduous trees grew green and bright on the edge of the ravine. The plants vary so widely in what seems like a small area. Water makes all the difference.
As we walked we kept our eyes on the ground. This park has an equestrian center and horses had obviously shared the path with us. When Ken took the motor home to the dump to empty the black tanks and take on fresh water he was surprised to find himself face to face with two horses who were hanging out of the trailer in front of him.
