On the day before I left, I went to the historic old fort on Fort Huachuca. They still have many of the old original buildings, the parade ground, and a small museum, built in the late 1800's. Reminded me a lot of the buildings on Fort Harrison in Indy. Similar architecture. But such a different climate!

Saturday, after I worked in the garden a bit, cleaned house, did laundry and unpacked, we went to see Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers at Eagle River Pavilion. Basically one of those huge outdoor trailer stages set on a lawn. There was a section of chairs near the stage, then an open area of grass for the cheaper seats. Unfortunately for the band, the organizers had angled the trailer-stage badly, so the setting sun shone on them from their left. It was hot and it meant the instruments were hard to keep in tune. Unfortunately for us, the lawn seating area actually angled slightly backwards. So not only was it hard to see over all the people in chairs, we were actually lower than we should have been. The band was great, and I was thrilled to see Steve Martin live, but I do NOT recommend the venue.
