DeGrazia Music Room, Gallery In The Sun   1 comment

“I want to be notorious rather than famous. Fame has too much responsibility. People forget you are human.”
– Ettore “Ted” DeGrazia

Ted DeGrazia earned two undergraduate degrees — one in music education, one in fine art and a master’s of fine arts. Known as Arizona’s most prolific artist, it is understandable that most people may not be aware of his shared dual passions for art and music.  Both helped him pay his way through college, painting during the day and leading his big band at night at Tucson’s Fox Theater.

His love of music was passed on to his son, Domingo DeGrazia, who today has his own band, the Domingo DeGarzia Spanish Guitar Band. We first saw Domingo and his band perform at the annual festival, La Fiesta de Guadalupe at the Gallery of the Sun.

The La Paz Street Scene — A Slideshow   3 comments

Our first day in La Paz was one of trying to adjust to the altitude and hilly streets without being run over by people and vehicles — most of the streets a narrow and bustling with activity. You learn quickly to move slowly and take your time, which is very important at this altitude (11,942 ft). We started the day with coca teas and leaves while continuing to drinks plenty of water.  We were well aware that altitude sickness is not to be underestimated.

La Paz is a beautiful city with a lot of contrasts. There are markets everywhere. The following slideshow will provide a feel of what we experienced walking the street around our hotel.

Early Signs Of Fall On Mt. Lemmon   4 comments

Oh, to be alive

when fall miracles

flourish for hiking

in the mountain’s

crisp morning air —

trail rocks

turning underfoot,

wildflower’s color vanishing

as nature’s

baton is passed

to towering trees

now showing their

kaleidoscopic colors

gently waving

beneath the blue sky 

with joyful

interpretation by all

disregarding her

gesture of farewell.

(Overnight temps near freezing are beginning to bring on the mountains fall colors — much more to come.)

King Canyon To Wasson Peak

Panorama of Wasson Peak Near The Top

SCVN guided hike to Wasson Peak via Kings Canyon trail, which is about a seven mile (roundtrip) hike and elevation gain of 1,900 ft.
Some of our hikers made only the Kings Canyon trail to the first saddle since we were experiencing unusually warm record-setting temperatures (the mid-90’s).

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people
are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home;
that wilderness is a necessity…”
― John Muir
