This is Camelback Mountain from our unit at the Worldmark.  That evening we stopped in Paradice Valley for a drink at the J.W. Mariott Camelback Inn.   Pictured below.

Arizona 2--Wet Arrival

This picture is a little out of sequence, but, please bear with me.
We left sunny Seattle to arrive in rainy Phoenix. Almost a reverse of what you would expect.
By the next day, though, it was nice enough to check out the pool.  The picture below was taken at the Worldmark Scottsdale, where we stayed. 
Thursday was our only full day in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.

Walla Walla Resident on Jeopardy

Congrats to David Sibley, an Episcopal priest who lives in my old hometown of Walla Walla.  Even though the DVR cut off in the middle of Final Jeopardy, it looked like Sibley did very well

The Barers Go To Arizona

We just returned from a trip to Arizona where we watched the daughter of Marjie and Rick get married. 
This picture was taken after we got our rental car at the Phoenix Airport.
We rented the above BMW from Sixt Car Rental.  We set it up online, so we did not have to wait in line.  This is the second time that we used that company and both times we had excellent results.

Dad reads a story from his book.

My Dad would have turned 93 today.  I  am posting this in his memory.
