Dove Mountain - AZ (Part 1)

My first trip to Arizona was great.  I didn't think I would love the desert as much as I did.  It was much more vibrant and beautiful than I imagined.

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain Resort.  The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the amenities were amazing, and the views spectacular.  

We enjoyed warm weather at a perfect 75-80 degrees during the day, with cooler temperatures at night.

 The hotel has many hiking trails surrounding it.  The views were breathtaking.

The best part about vacationing was going on dinner dates, eating new foods, and not worrying about cleaning the dishes or making beds.

If only everyday life would be more like a vacation!


  1. I'm dying to feel the 80 degree weather again! Heck I would be happy with 60 degree weather! You look gorgeous as always! So glad you two had a good time!

    1. I even got a little sunburnt and I didn't care. It's supposed to snow tonight and then be 50 degrees this weekend. Crazy!

  2. WOW - what a fabulous resort, nestled in that little valley. Something about desert landscapes - LOVE the rocks...and that MIRROR!!! Fabulous!
