Tucson, Arizona

Tucson is a very photogenic city. And lots of pictures were taken as a result. I do not deny a pretty picture from being taken.

Here was last night’s sunset:

And the city exits off I-10 were unavailable, including the main drag (Congress) through downtown, and here was the reason why:

Once in downtown, I saw this curious sight outside of the famous Hotel Congress, where I could hear a band playing:

Where was the S from? They loaded it into a truck. Where were they taking it? Was it a bad S? Did it no longer serve its function? I wouldn’t mind having an S in my living room. Of course, I wouldn’t have room for anything else with an S that size!

 

 

 

Next I found I was parked in front of an abandoned hotel, the Santa Rita Hotel, taking up an entire city block in downtown. Perhaps it was actually being renovated, as I saw a guard stationed inside the next morning, seated at a desk, perhaps to check workers in. And behind the hotel, was this statue:

Well, it is time to go check out the Kitt Peak Observatory, take the tour of the facility and then skedaddle off to Phoenix. And eventually a full night’s sleep, not in the car.
