At the end of January, I departed Portal, AZ and headed to Tucson. I had a long list of things I needed to do in the city – shopping, haircut, laundry, etc. I also did a couple hikes in Saguaro National Park. Saguaro NP is a real treasure right at the edge of the city with some beautiful hiking trails.
On July 9, I traveled to Westcliffe for the annual High Mountain Hay Fever Bluegrass Festival. This lovely small town is situated in the beautiful Wet Mountain Valley. The valley is between the Wet Mountains to the east and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the west.
