Raccoon and Spot's Excellent Adventure!

Remember last time, when I told you how Raccoon and Spot had some adventures in Arizona? OK, now I'll give you the rest of the story.

Raccoon decided it was time to take a trip to Arizona (actually, I decided that for him, but that's a small matter). Raccoon took a cramped and dark trip on an airplane from Portland and found himself in sunny Arizona, in the Sonoran desert to be exact. What a change from Portland! The sunshine put the adventurous spirit in him, so he decided to do some trekking through the desert. That's where he met Spot. The two of them had just come out from a cactus forest at the same time:

They looked each other in the eyes and realized they would be life-long friends. It was friendship at first sight! They immediately made plans to go on a spiritual pilgrimage. Both wanted to trek to an old desert mission AND see some natural wonders along the way. So off they went together. Here's a photo of the two of them in front of a giant redwood cactus, one of the last living giant redwood cacti around today (due to overlogging):

They met a few fellow pilgrims along the way:

And here's a photo of the two of them in front of the old dessert mission. It was a spiritual experience for both of them:

After Raccoon and Spot's excellent adventure, they endured a dark and cramped airplane ride back to Portland. And here we are. Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer
