This tall cowboy has been welcoming travelers and east side residents since 1982. He is posted on Houghton Road - way up on the hill beside Tucson McGraw's Steak House. The restaurant's patio offers amazing views of the Santa Ritas!
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. (:
