DeGrazia tour on Historical League tour Day 3. Felt inspired to see all his works: sketches at 3 am, cholla slices embedded in cement for the floor, stations of the cross . . .so much artistic expression in his home.

Arizona Inn on Historical League Tour

Arizona Inn has amazing history. We are so pleased to have them in Tastes & Treasures II with their story and recipes.
Manager Patrick Cray gave us an informative tour and a small B&W book filled with history of the place. Hollywood and high society came often to Arizona Inn.
Perfect place for our group photo among the flowers.



Ruth McLeod and Cathy Shumard enjoy the beautiful furniture, surroundings

Delicious lunch. Photo courtesy of Bonnie Newhoff
