Hiking in Saguaro National Park, Tucson, AZ
No, not Paris; the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas
View of the Grand Canyon from the South Rim
On Jan. 2, I flew to Tucson to spend a few days at Canyon Ranch with my mother. We had a fantastic time and it was so relaxing. I exercised like crazy, ate fabulous, healthy food, and had three massages. One of the highlights was a hike in Saguaro National Park.
From Tucson, I flew to Las Vegas, where I stayed "on the strip" at the Paris Hotel. Everything in Las Vegas is a spectacle and the Paris Hotel has a replica Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe on the premises. I ate very well in Las Vegas! (One does not go to Vegas to be a good girl!). But the highlight was a day trip to the Grand Canyon with Grand Adventures Tours. It was fabulous! I cannot describe the impact of seeing the Grand Canyon in person, though I took over 100 photos in an attempt to preserve the memory.
Now I'm home, the laundry is finished, I have a few Christmas decorations to put away, then it's back to quilting.
