We parked or RVs at the Pima Country Fairgrounds south of Tucson in an area just opened for RV parking with full hookups and 50 A service. It was a bit remote from the city, but the price was right.
On Friday we visited the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum for a few hours.
At the entrance to the museum was parked this nice looking station wagon. What is its make, model and approximate year?Answer at the end.
In the cave exhibit we learned about bats in Arizona, and Herb had the opportunity to pose with bat ears. I prefer hearing aids!
The rest of the guys posed with vulture wings. Above is Wayne Mitchell, I am below, followed by Mike Williams. I guess that the ladies were too reserved to avail themselves of the photo op!
And here is the boojam tree. A sign explained that when an U S botanist saw one for the first time he gave it an English name after a mythical tree in a poem The History of The Snark by Lewis Carroll. The tree is found only in Baja California and a few in Sonora.
We walked into the hummingbird aviary to get close to the tiny birds. A little patience and sitting still paid off with these shots.
Friday night we went to El Chorro Mexican Restaurant in downtown Tucson for their good food. The restaurant has been in business since 1922 and is still operated by the same family.
Above are Wayne and Terry Mitchell and Mary and Herb Fust. Below are Jo Strong and Barbara and Mike Williams.
The car is a Studebaker Lark, circa 1960.
