We spent one night of the long (4 days for me!) Memorial Day weekend at the lovely Hermosa Inn in Paradise Valley which is actually only about 4-5 miles from our house. It’s a beautiful, award-winning resort that bills itself as a “boutique hideaway.” It’s small, with only 34 casitas, and even though it isn’t far from the heart of metropolitan Phoenix, you would never know it when you’re there. It’s quiet, isolated, and surrounded by desert. The Hermosa Inn began as cowboy artist Alonzo “Lon” Megargee’s home and studio in the 1930s and evolved through the years to a guest ranch, a resort, and now the Inn.
Weather-wise, this has been a gorgeous weekend in Phoenix with temperatures in the upper 80s the last 2 days. If you know Phoenix, you know that is a treat this time of year. So far, we have actually had a spring here. Today the high is going to be 86!!!!!
This was our patio where we had a private breakfast of mesquite pancakes (not so good) but, all in all, it was a lovely experience. And, I got enough photos for a couple posts so stay tuned for more flowers and desert plants!
