Elizabeth and I have just returned to our Scottsdale home after an exquisite weekend in Tucson. Overall, it is hard to beat a weekend like this. It had a little bit of everything that constitutes fun, both in earthly and spiritual senses.
We attended a marvelous opera, and went peak-top-peak, cheek-to-cheek 🙂 – from Mt Lemmon (8,200 ft) to Kitt Peak National Observatory (7,000 ft).
We watched the sun for the first time through the world’s largest solar telescope, and saw two giant solar spots or flares. And then we drove back to Tucson through a torrential monsoon thunderstorm which cleared the air and dropped the temperature 30F.
We finished the weekend this morning (Oct 20) with an 8-mile hike in the Sabino Canyon.
