Globetrotter Girls – Road Tripping in Southern Arizona

Southern Arizona - Dany

This week’s Polaroid is coming a little earlier than usual because I have two more posts coming up this weekend – including my monthly round-up on Sunday!

Having a visitor in town was the perfect excuse to do a lot of sightseeing, hiking and road tripping in the past seven days. Showing a first-time visitor around Arizona was a great way to see this beautiful part of the US with new eyes and our itinerary included revisiting old favorites of mine, like Saguaro National Park, road tripping to nearby towns such as the Old Western town Tombstone (including its hilarious cemetery) and the charming mining-turned-artist-town Bisbee, and escaping the hot desert summer to cooler temperatures up on top of Mount Lemmon, where I hadn’t been since 2010.

I find road tripping through the barren desert scenery incredibly liberating, the wide open plains and big open skies that imply the land in front of you is yours to discover, evoking a true feeling of freedom which fills my heart with joy.
