Tucson Trip - March 2014

Hi

This weekend I was able to go to Tucson to see Nick and a spring training game, and that was really a lot of fun.
On Saturday Nick, Jessie and I went to the Colossal Cave on the outskirts of Tucson.. and it was really interesting! The cave is dormant and dry so not the usual cold and damp of most caves. In fact, it stays at 70 degrees (F) year round which is nice in the summer and in the winter. Here are some of the pictures of the cave and surrounding area;
