This week we attended the AZ Cattle Growers Convention in Tucson. It was held at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. The resort is located in an absolutely beatuiful location. What I loved about the resort is how it is built to fit right into the natural beauty of the landscape, at the base of Mt. Lemmon in the Catalina Foothills. We enjoyed the walking trails around the resort, with informational signs and pathways going in all directions. There is a waterfall at the top of the resort. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool where we spent most of our time. Well Rachel, Morgan and I did, not Doug. He spent most of his time at the convention. He was a presenter at one of the sessions. One night we went to a steak dinner held at U of A farm where 99% of the guests wore cowboy hats and danced to "Boot Scootin' Boogie." The dinner was cooked in dutchovens. Fun few days!
