The 1930’s El Rancho Robles Dude Ranch in Oracle, Arizona. It is no longer a dude ranch, though some rooms are rented as apartments today. It is approx 4500 feet above sea level. There are lots of birds and wildlife. Trees shade the property, and a stream runs through it. Click here (PDF) to see an old brochure from the University of Arizona Library (PDF format) on the El Rancho Robles dude ranch.
We stopped in Rincon Market recently and had a delicious “Miller’s Melt” sandwich and a salad. Both were fresh and tasty. The atmosphere there at The Village at Sam Hughes (where Rincon Market is located) is interesting and comfortable. Just a minute or two from the University of Arizona in Tucson.
People were out at La Encantada Shopping Center in Tucson’s Catalina Foothills tonight enjoying food and drinks. University of Arizona Head Football Coach Mike Stoops was one of them. There are several places to eat and drink, including RA Sushi, North, Armitage Wine Lounge & Café, Blanco Tacos and Tequila, Firebird’s Wood Fired Grill, Red Velvet Cupcakery, Frost, and AJ’s Fine Foods (where they have a nice fireplace outside).
What started as a normal Saturday morning trip to the bank at Ina and Oracle (same shopping plaza as the Safeway where the shooting took place) resulted in something we never could have imagined. These are some of our photos and what we have seen over the last week.

These are a few of our “Tucson Weather” photos taken over the last couple of years. Tucson is an amazing place to see sunsets, sunrises, monsoon storms, lightning and cloud formations. Did you know there are five seasons here? We hope you enjoy the video.
