Vacation - Tucson, Arizona
Finally --- some time away from the "rock pile" ( also known as my office). I managed a few days in Tucson, Arizona to visit a friend and take time to do some sightseeing in the area. February - March is probably the best time to visit Arizona as the daily temperatures are pleasant: not too hot (in the summer the temperatures are positively Middle Eastern in nature exceeding 100 deg F) and not too cold.
I visited the Biosphere 2 facility north of Tucson (an environmentalist's delight) and also toured Tombstone (where the gunfight at the OK Corral took place) and enjoyed walking along Allen Street (where the OK Corral is actually located) and looking at the old recreated parts of that famous western town. I also visited the Pima Air and Space Museum east of Tucson.
