Arizona Again

I flew to Arizona to visit friends again in mid-October but I had an ulterior motive this time.  The NHRA Arizona Nationals were at Firebird Raceway that weekend and I wanted to see it.

We also visited the Desert Botanical Gardens, one of my favorite places in Phoenix, to view some huge wooden insects and an enclosure full of Monarch Butterflies.

As always my hosts are what made it so great.  Without you guys it would have been a hollow and boring trip. 

There are other photographs from this trip on This Page of my web site.

22nd Annual AACA Car Show

The 22nd Annual Antique and Classic Car Show put on by the Battlefield Region AACA was held today at Cool Springs Mall.  I missed the first 21 events so I figured I would go by this one for a while.

It was a huge event with a couple of hundred cars on display.  Everything from antiques to exotics, perfectly restored and adding their own brilliance to a beautiful fall day.
