Can You Believe this is my 100th post for Tuesday Tidbits? A few more posts and I’ll be able to say I have posted 2 years of Tuesday Tidbits in a row! These all started because of my Dad… he use to print (not on a computer but he would set type and print a Tidbits newspaper!) I was inspired by my Dad!
It was a great week! We got out for a desert ride in the Jeep with several friends!
I know we live in the desert… but the desert needs rain too. It has not rained here for months! July, August and September are our Monsoon months when we have big afternoon storms. We did not have a monsoon season… the last rain we had was in May. As a result the ground is extremely dry.
Free range cattle can be found as you cross the desert… they eat prickly pear cactus when they can’t find water.
Horses graze as well… we were pretty sure this beauty was not wild as we were close to a ranch.
As we drive along… the landscape is incredible!
As you all know… even in the middle of the desert there can be an amazing OASIS!
Castle Hot Springs Resort is found in the middle of the desert. It’s a historical and luxurious resort that was popular in the 1900’s where the Vanderbilts, Astor’s, and the Wrigley’s stayed. John F. Kennedy also loved this place because of its Hot Springs! However, it fell to disrepair and was closed for many, many years. But a Phoenix couple Cindy and Mike Watts bought the property in 2014 and have brought it back to what it was when it was built in 1896.
Booking the historical cottage where the Roosevelts and the Rockefeller’s once stayed will cost you about $1900.00 per night for 6. The Sky View Cabin is $1,000 per night. And the Bungalows are about $1,000 per night as well.
When we drove by… the place was busy! When I got home I looked up to see if there was room at the Inn… it was booked!
It was good to get home after a fabulous ride in the desert…
The moon has been enjoyable to watch not only at night but also during the day. Are you a moon watcher?
Thank you for your visit! I sure do appreciate it!
