Made it to Arizona

We left home this past Thursday morning around 6:45 and headed to our winter retreat in Arizona.  We had a good trip and only had a little snow and ice to contend with the first 100 miles or so.  We did have some strong winds Thursday and Friday, but Saturday was an easy day and we got to our place here around 2:30 in the afternoon.  We are all moved in and unpacked now and even have the grocery shopping done.  Now it is time to relax and enjoy the warm weather.  It is 61 here today, but a little cloudy.  It is "shorts" weather and I already have mine on.  The following pictures are from the trip and some of our place here.

This is how our front yard at home looked the day before we left.

This is the backyard the day before we left.

The first day and a half was pretty dull and then we saw the mountains for the first time.

Closer shot of the same mountains above.

One shot of our backyard here.

Another shot of the backyard showing the patio area.

Close up shot of the fire pit area.  Nice deep fire pit and a bench to sit on.
