I love Arizona, nice being back here. Some things have changed, some things are still the same. Last week there was a couple of rain showers, pretty rare around here. But I forgot about the smell of the desert after some rain comes through. Some times it smells like creosote, or just a unique aroma from all that desert dirt finally getting wet.

I finally shaved for the first time since I left Kentucky. I would have kept it going, but I cannot find a hat like Walter White wore. The beard was getting a bit scary looking, and I did not want to be raising flags when I am going through all these Border Patrol Inspection Stations.
I just signed up for another week at this camp. There is really no reason to move right now. Plenty to see and do. Of course, this weekend I am doing a lot of basketbal...
