Visiting Friends

Two old friends from high school visited the past week. (Which explains my lack of posting!)

A & S @ Gates Pass, Tucson Mountain Park

As expected, we were able to pick up right where we left off and had a blast hanging out. It was really good to see some familiar faces here in Tucson. Unfortunately though, they brought Ohio's shitty weather with them when they came. No joke. It was about 75 the whole week before they came. When they got here, it rained three days in a row and I don't think it went over 65 (if that) the whole time they were here. Bad weather when company is in town... Seems inevitable.

I still had to work when they were here, but it only ended up being 2 of the 5 full days they were visiting. We dealt with the weather and squeezed in what we could between the clouds.

A & S @ San Xavier
We went to the San Xavier Mission. I've been here before for a virtual geocache, but I was glad to have a chance to visit the beautiful church again. We also walked up a nearby hill that had a little grotto area and a nice view.



We took one of my favorite shots of the week up on that hill...

There was also a little crafting while they were here...

And some hiking, though not as much as we had hoped, thanks to the weather...

I'm so glad they got to come for a visit! Fun was had by all :-)


  1. Great photos. Looks like you hit some cool spots. Gotta love Gates Pass. Love the panorama photo with the mission. Supposedly this week will be warmer. Did your friends' take the cooler temps back to Ohio with them. ;-)

  2. Gates pass IS awesome. I am hoping they took the weather with them ;-)

  3. It's always fun to get together with old friends and it looks like you had a great time in spite of the weather. Loved the jumping photo!

  4. looks like you had a nice visit even though they brought that shitty weather!

    loved the JumpForJoy shot!!!!
    cute little button tree too!
