Yes, Iíve seen them on Google Earth- itís fascinating. When we stayed in Tucson, we drove down to Nogales on the Mexican border (donít bother). On the way back we got pulled over and the car searched for immigrants!

Your itinerary looks wonderful! Lots we've done and would like to do. Looks like you've chosen some great hotels too - with breakfasts! I do hope it all works out for you this time - fingers crossed
