Bisbee, AZ is a quirky town not too far from Tucson. It sprang up as a mining town that had its boom at the turn of the century with copper. Now it has transformed itself into an artists community of sorts with lots of galleries and antique shops. The town is built into a mountain so there are many winding, narrow stone streets and houses perched at impossible angles. Here's a gate announcing the temperament of its resident feline.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
