Everyone who has been to downtown Tucson has seen Toby, the fantastic 12' tall Griffin who guards Scott Avenue just south of Broadway. But do you know about the footprints? Legend has it that there were griffin sculpture decorating the Carnegie Library (now the Children's Museum) and one escaped. The lion and eagle footprints are visible in the sidewalk. Fun!
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. (:
