We enjoyed a wonderful trip to Phoenix February 2 through 5.
Mike attended a conference in Albuquerque at the end of January. After the conference, Sus joined him in Phoenix so we could visit donors. We had a great time and were able to visit five families in three days.
We arrived on Saturday afternoon, then for dinner, we drove out of the valley and saw a beautiful sunset on our way to Pinnacle Peak Patio for a cowboy dinner of beans and mesquite-grilled steak. Sus had been here before when she was a student at ASU. Pinnacle Peak Patio looks like an old western town. The atmosphere is rustic and the food is good. We highly recommend it.
We had some time after church on Sunday to take a drive in the country. We drove from Apache Junction north to Canyon Lake. Even with cloudy skies, the scenery was beautiful. We both enjoy photography so we took a lot of pictures. This route is marked as a scenic drive. The road goes by the Superstition Mountains where the Lost Dutchman mine is supposed to be.
We then went to a friend’s to watch the Super Bowl and relax.
We had three appointments the next day. We had breakfast in a restaurant in Sun City West, lunch at Olive Garden in Prescott, and dinner at another restaurant in Surprise. We were careful what we ate, but we did put on a few pounds!
For those who don’t know, Prescott is north of Phoenix. We enjoyed another beautiful drive through the Arizona countryside. This time, with snow-capped mountains. When we left Prescott it was snowing! We were thrilled to see some snow.
