El Presidio Walking Tour

This afternoon, we left the sticks and drove into Tucson to hunt for the historic section of town.  We've tried several times in the past and failed to find anything but highrises, so I was determined this trip.  After driving round in circles in the downtown area, I finally spotted a street with a row of old buildings that looked like they'd been splashed with Easter egg colors.  Stop the car!  We'd happened upon the historic El Presidio district, a perfect place for a walking tour with my camera!

Thanks for some wonderful ideas for our gate, now if I can only persuade Hubby to step out of his stern New England comfort zone...

Lynda, it took us years to find it!

Helen, sorry we missed you! We'll be there in a few weeks if you're still there.

Sandia, if you ignore the weird politics, Arizona's a great place for climate and scenery!
