Polaroid of the week: Goodbye, Arizona!

Polaroid of the week: Goodbye, Arizona!

polaroid of the week arizona tucson saguaro cactiTime flew by this year in Tucson. Our housesit has come to an end and we spent one last day enjoying the desert landscape we love so much. Last week, our friends Dave and Lauren passed through town on their South West road trip, and we took them on a drive through the Saguaro National Park and a 3-hour hike through Sabino Canyon, ignoring the fact that it was 102°F/39°C outside!

We’re actually now following in their footsteps, and our New Mexico road trip starts tomorrow! We’re sad to leave our dog, our friendly neighbors, this gorgeous pool and the Saguaros that tower over us high into the sky, but we couldn’t be more excited for this next road trip phase. We’ll stop at Gila Cliff Dwellings, board down the White Sands dunes, see thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of bats flying out of and back into Carlsbad Caverns, lunch with aliens in Roswell, explore Albuquerque and the Turquoise Trail, have a sophisticated stay in Santa Fe, trek with llamas in Taos and so much more!

We can’t fit you all in the car with us, but you can follow along on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook at the hashtag #2girls1chevy and stay tuned for next week’s Polaroid of the Week to see the best thing we experienced during Week 1 of our trip!

Polaroid of the week: Spring in Southern Arizona - GlobetrotterGirls

Friday 19th of February 2021

[…] After 19 months away,  I am back in Southern Arizona, one of my favorite places in the world and probably the place I’ve returned to the most since starting traveling full-time in 2010. I couldn’t be happier to be housesitting in Tucson again, spending time with the dog I love so much, taking advantage of having a well-equipped kitchen (I’ve been baking and cooking up a storm), explore more of the area and eat fabulous Mexican food. I love being here in the spring when the cacti are blooming and can’t wait to return to Saguaro National Park to photograph the giant Saguaros while they’re still in bloom. […]
