staying at the Road Runner Hostel, I made a day trip to Tombstone
visited Mission San Xavier del Bac (1783) 9 miles south of
Tucson. Bought another scapula for my friend Carol.
Took a day trip to the Biosphere II in Oracle, Arizona. I was
surprised that no one was there. The place was practically
empty. I guess Sept. isn't the tourist season
at the Biosphere, I learned more scary information about the
greenhouse effect and the rise in global temperature.
in the Biosphere garden.
being turned away from the Hotel Congress Hostel, they told me about
this place. I'm glad they did. It was located on a side
street with plenty of safe parking. The managers were friendly
and helpful. The place was clean and cool. It was the
perfect place to come back to for a good nights sleep after day
Got up at
4am to drive to Tombstone one day. The next day got up at 4am
to drive to Oracle, AZ to see the Biosphere II. And places in
Comfy, cool livingroom at the Road Runner Hostel.
