We drove towards Tucson on highway 79 on the Pinal Pioneer Road thru the Cactus Gardens which were beautiful in the morning sunlight. At the Oracle Junction we turned north on Hwy. 77 towards Globe (which is 79 miles north). We came across a (new to us) Robson Ranch golf course called Saddle Brooke Ranch. It has only been open for 2 years...we looked around the models homes and loved the high desert location right in the mountains..they have a huge recreational facility with swimming pools and a bistro which just opened.
Back on the road we stopped in at Biosphere 2 run by the University of AZ..very very cool place..we didn't stop to take the tour but we will go back and look around.
This was our lunch stop...can you believe it..here is our picnic proof!!
Another successful excellent adventure day.
Will post the photos of Globe and Miami at a later date.
