We left Silver City and drove down the hills towards Lordsburg and took the highway towards Arizona. In the pictures are the Cupper mines of Tyron to see.
This is how it looks out in the desert: long straight roads for miles to go and mountains, mountains, all over you can see!
We stopped by a ghost town named STEIN - it was closed because of to many ghost activities...LOL... it was not open for the public anymore
Soon after STEIN we crossed the state line to Arizona. I always wanted to see this beautiful "Grand Canyon State"
I'm fascinated with cactus flowers and cactus plants. You will see more of them in my coming next photos, visiting some National Parks and the heart of the desert of Arizona
We arrived in Tuscon Arizona and outside of the city we have found a great place to spend the night: on the parking lot of the Desert Diamond Casino which is owned by Tohono O'odham Indian tribe. And of course, YES, we went to the Casino - and YES, we did some gamblings - and NO, we didn't won....LOL... we lost a little bit of our pocket money :)).... no problems, maybe next time we will be more lucky!
Hi my friends
Thank you very much for all your nice comments and compliments to my post about Silver City. Yes it was a nice experience for both of us to visit that hill town in New Mexico, close to the Arizona border. And the ride to Arizona was pretty too. Arizona is a very nice state and there is a lot to see also. We will visit probably Sedona, AZ on our way back coming from Las Vegas, some when in summer or so...
Tomorrow I will show you some photos from a very great and exciting place in the heart of the desert and up in the hills. We slept there in one of the big Sate Parks and I have captured for you a mountain sunset. So stay tuned!
Looking forward to your comments and see you soon!
Susanne and David
