Safford, Arizona

My work sent me out of town for a night this week to the lovely town of Safford. I checked every hotel in a 30 mile radius and none had a single room so I checked the local bed and breakfasts and found the cutest only house to stay in. If you are ever in Safford, I highly recommend staying in the Olney House in downtown. It was so much fun to stay at. Have a look ( I stayed in the fireplace room in the main house. I wanted to go explore the city but I was so tired that I fell asleep and never made it. I guess being tired was expected since I had to get up at 2:30 in the morning to make it out to Safford on time (6:00 a.m.). Ah, the joys of travelling for your job. I do have to go back for another day next week but I probably just drive out and back in one day rather than staying overnight.

I also took some pictures of the railroad that goes through the area just for fun. I like the look of old railroads with sepia tones. It makes it look antique.

I love the wood texture in the last picture. You always did have an artistic eye. Can't wait to see you next week for Britt's b-day!

Great Pix Paige. I would have loved to stay in the cute old house with you. I'm always looking out for historic homes. I'm sorry you have to drive so much and rest little. I don't know how you do it. HOw is Josh doing with school as far as finishing goes? Miss you love you lots!
