While in Tucson we toured the Mission San Xavier del Bac which means "White Dove of the Desert." It is quite beautiful in its restored state in the first three photos. The next two photos are looking east and west from Gates Pass just west of Tucson.
We also visited the Pima Air Museum and also cruised around the Boneyard. The Boneyard is where thousands of decommissioned planes are parked in the desert for storage. The idea is the desert climate will not cause deterioration to the plane parts. Pima has many of the airplanes of the past on display including the Blackbird and also Presidents Kennedy and Johnson's Air Force 1 plane. The huge guppy plane looked to us like it would be impossible to fly, but it did. It was used by NASA to give the astronauts the opportunity to experience weightlessness.
