While we were tramping about in the rain for our walking tour I took a quick photo of this fun directional sign. Not strictly historical but cool to look at anyway. It is a metal sort-of agave sculpture that has all of the Arizona counties "sprouting" out of it as flowers. I love public art!
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. (:
