warm and sunny tucson – biking along “the wash” lunch at Choice Greens


We arrived late Saturday in Phoenix by plane and then drove 1.5 hours south to Tucson where we awoke the next morning to bright blue sky, mountains, warm sun –  a nice change from cold snowy Iowa. Eager to be outdoors, we rode along “the Wash” in north Tucson for about 14 miles, stopping at St. Philip’s Plaza on Campbell ave. to browse at the weekend farmers market (most interesting item: worm compost, a strange grey-colored bag of dirt) then lunch at what was first called “Chopped” but is now known as “Choice Greens” – a design-your-own salad place that remains good, whatever its name. On today to hike at Catalina State Park up the road in Oro Valley.
