The first concrete evidence today that we were reaching our winter home was the sight of saguaro cactus. These aren't the very first ones we saw (I didn't have the camera ready), but close to it. As we drove down hill along the Beeline Highway, we began seeing all the plants that decorate the Sonoran Desert, including ocotillo, cholla, mesquite and palo verde.
We arrived at Valle Del Oro Resort just after noon and began setting up for a three-month stay. By mid-afternoon, we were settled. Now, it's time to relax.
