Arivaca, Arizona

Here we are wintering 12 miles north of the border in a grassy, mesquite treed valley surrounded by several mountain ranges, a holy Indian peak, blue skies, amazing sunsets, and good friends.

We expected warm temps, but are enjoying 60 degree days and 25 degree nights. Great for hiking and sleeping.

Today we headed for Tubac to shop for Mexican painted dinner plates, two new sinks for our prairie bathroom. Good food, great companionship and success in shopping for ways to add color to the little house on the prairie at reasonable prices.

While we are away, the Sierra are melting - daytime temps above freezing in the portal. Perhaps we will return sometime in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, enjoying sunshine without snow is a welcome diversion.
