Virtue and Vice Tour

I returned last night from a trip; here are a few of the places I've been:

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.

Ooooh, how exciting! I LOVE that area of the country! Did you go to the North Rim (I'm guessing no, due to the time of year?) or South Rim or somewhere else?
