Giants and Titans

Today’s drive took us to Tuscon, AZ with our first stop at the Titan Missile Museum. We got to see the control room and the actual missile sitting in the solo. It was somewhat disappointing that we did not get to see more but was still pretty cool…and scary. Because of my bum leg, I got to ride the express elevator down which took just under two minutes to go all of 34 feet.

We then headed to the Saguaro National Park to see the giant Saguaro cactuses (Yes Grammar Police, ‘cactuses’ is correct.  I looked it up.)  We toured the park and were amazed by the size and sheer numbers of them.  We even drove the Bajada loop (kudos to Laura for navigating it) which is a narrow, steep, dusty, six-mile long, dirt road that is so bumpy that our coffee maker stopped working afterwards. IMG_0391BW

The Starbucks bill the next day, however, was incentive enough for us to get the Keurig back on line that evening.
