Information explaining the time line

Today Desire and I went out to feed the pigeons again: this time we made a quick tour on the left side and ended up on Almeida street from where we were able to stop at a small area designated to the history and time line of Southern Arizona. The 12,000 year long history is broken down on black plaques explaining what transpired up until now . . . The time line runs in a zig zag pattern that leads to El Presidio Park. On August 20, 1775 Captain Hugo O'Connor selected the site for the presidio San Agustin Del Tucson in what is now down town Tucson. On October 24 Captain Juan Bautista de Anza and his soldiers passed through Tucson with nearly two hundred people from Mexico heading to San Francisco to establish a presidio there in California. There is more to it, I just didn't get enough information. If you spend some time in Tucson, you will find that it is a city rich in history, culture and people. Beside touring the down town area, there is much more to do in the out skirts. I have listed a few things in the previous blog. But just in case, take a look at my reviews on; Pima Air & Space Museum, Arizona State Museum, Tucson Museum of Art, Biosphere 2, Titan Missile Museum, Desert museum, Colossal Cave Mountain Park, Saguaro National Park, Kitt Peak Observatory, Tohono Chul Park, Old Tucson Studios, Tucson Botanical Gardens, University of Arizona museum of art.
