General city Information, Tucson
When we travel we always try to take are little furry family member, but he is not always allowed in the hotel or time share accomodations. So I search for places that I can keep him nearby. I found this place on the web and after talking with them felt he would be comfortable and safe here. Once we got there and were given a tour, we all felt he would be ok here. The facility is in the industrial part of the city, but the place was clean and the staff were so friendly. He took to them right away. He had his own airconditioned doggie room and the dog run was even shaded. Their prices were very reasonable. What was sad is they mentioned people tend to abandon their pets here. Check them in and never come back. They said it was mainly college students.

ARIZONA IS A Great place to visit.The temperature is hot in April but dry so you feel it less. If you are on the mountain side it is cool at night. I spent a month on two seperate occasions and saw something new every day. ex. Air show.The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, COLOSSAL CAVE,The Lilies of the Field historical church,We went by car to the top of Mount Lemon near Tucson and there was still some snow on the ground. ( thrilling ride, scary). A SIDE TRIP BY BUS TO The Grand Canyon, visiting on the way Jerome (billion dollar copper camp) now abondened by the mining Co. but the residents now are mainly artists, selling their wares to the tourists.A thrilling ride up and down the mountain on narrow roads. Montezuma Castle,Superstition Mountain, Red Rock crossing at Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona,Flagstaff, Prescott' Took an other side trip by air to Los Vegas for 3 days and stayed at Caesar's Palace..A trip to visit Old Tucson( where they use to make cowboy movies) and to Tombstone (O.K. Corral).We also went by car to Nogales Mexico, which is only a couple hours from Tucson. We spent the day there shopping.----------------------------------------------------------------- I went first by air in 1989 to Tucson and returned by auto (2500 miles from Montreal) via Toronto. London,Windsor, Chicago. A stop for 3 days at Branson Missouri and continued west though north Texas down through New Mexico and into Arizona.Great trip.I stayed for a month. Rented a condo first time (Chateau Sonata Apts. )Second time in a freinds home at Finisterra Estates. More on this later with pictures.Eat at the Hidden Valley Inn 4825 North Sabino Canyon. This restaurant is a museum, as well ,of the 'Old West'. Great place for kids to see.
Fondest memory: The beautiful clear blue sky. The warm dry weather and the sun,the flowers and the cactus trees. Almost wish I lived there all the time. Health insurance keeps me in Canada.( The picture is the latest one of my daughter and family my sister Claudette Simonne and myself. It was taken at Sudbury Ontario in July 2001 at a family reunion.
Mount Lemon is a nice place to go. It's about an hour a drive from Tucson. When I was there, it was 30 degrees (Celcius) in Tucson but there was still snow on Mount Lemon! And also try and check out the Desert Museum!
Fondest memory: Of course I miss the cactusses. They are great!!! I loved them and since Arizona and Mexico are about the only places where they are, I think I've to go back once to see them again!

Favorite thing: Tucson has always had plenty of room to grow. Nothing but barren desert in all directions, rampant development has made this once small town into a behemoth of a city.
