Moving to Montreal and New Blog Site!

Hey all.  It’s been too long.  Life got crazy.  We traveled to Spain, left our jobs, took a camping trip through Michigan’s UP and Ontario, visited our hometowns, and are settling in Montreal!  Jordan was accepted as a PhD candidate, and I’m scrambling to learn French and find some new work.  Our successes and misadventures will be chronicled at a new blog (I was quickly running out of photo storage space on the wordpress.com hosted site anyhow).

Please, I would love it if you’d join me at www.therestoflhistoire.com. Hope to see you there!

Sunset in Saguaro National Park

And this is the final post, because I promised it would be.  After eating and resting, we drove the Cactus Forest Drive Loop.  I felt like the west park seemed to have more of a cactus “forest” myself, but still, the drive was wonderful.  The loop closes at sundown, so you’ll have to be sure to sneak in just before the gate to the drive closes.  Then take your time.  Find your sunset spot.  Hold down on that shutter button until the clouds are no longer glowing oranges, purples, pinks, and blues.  Then drive away with a sense that everything is right in your world, if only for that one hour.

(There is one lack luster paragraph below–because there was a massive jackrabbit in it, thought it does not look massive in retrospect–and Jordan and I both are SDSU alum, so it had to be included.)

Ahhh.

Nature Walk {Ijams Nature Center}

Apparently, there was a severe thunderstorm warning in effect during our wanderings.  Didn’t bother me.
