We lived in the Tucson area for about 6 years in the 90's. I miss it every day, even in the summer for its beauty. How are the Saguaro doing in the Mountain Park? We were there from 1990-1993 and 1996-1999 and it changed so much. I can't imagine how it has changed in 10 years but most places don't change for the better anymore. I know they built onto the Desert Museum and hope to travel back to see that. Also thought that I read that Old Tucson reopened. We always liked Gilbert Ray campground - loved it actually. Just consider yourself lucky to be there - from Kansas.

I like the Saguaro, Anywhere. We were at the Desert Museum last year and they were building something (some sort of indoor cave or nocturnal something something) - I bet it is done by now. They had a black bear, too, that they retired so his enclosure is just empty.

You should come back if you miss it so much.

i like it so far, havent been here long tho..still havent made it to the desert museum & other things..
but i do love the mountains, desert landscape, etc., & prefer it (& the weather) to the landscape & weather everywhere else i have been with the exception of some california coast areas.
but it's all a matter of opinion whether you prefer arizona or kansas or wherever else, so no one is really "wrong", not like it matters anyways...

I used to live in Beloit, KS. Nothing but wheat and corn all around. No city, no downtown to speak of. But, it is the county seat of Mitchell county. Talk about small. And my husband spent his summers in Alexander, KS working wheat and oil fields. Our daughter and dh live in Paola, KS and son lives in Ossawatomie, KS. So, I know Kansas. Inside out. Aunt and uncle lived in Topeka. The U of K also gives out a legal scholorship in my Uncle's name each year. Other than the awful humidity, I'm pretty used to Kansas and like it a lot. Wouldn't live there, it's too flat, no hills or mountains, but it has some really nice cities and areas.
