Arizona Road Trip: Tucson

I’m going to be away on vacation for a while so I’ve decided to give you all a little vacation from Phoenix while I’m away.  I’m going to take you on a little road trip into southern Arizona.  Heading south on interstate 10 from Phoenix, my first stop is Tucson Arizona.  Tucson is an interesting city with many historic landmarks and colorful areas.  Today I’m featuring photos from one of my favorite areas of town, a historic neighborhood full of adobe homes and buildings painted in bright colors.

Can you beat red in a photo? I think not.

The red house is absolutely gorgeous, from the door, to the tilework, to the lush landscaping. Have a nice trip.

Thanks for taking us along! Such beautiful local "color"!

Looking at these homes makes me want a nice cold margarita (don't ask why--I think it's just the festive
colors) Especially love the flora going on in the first shot.
