The tiny La Capillita Chapel stands on the grounds of San Pedro Church in Tucson Arizona. It has an alter and was used by the priest, as the congregation stood outside on the desert grounds. This little chapel has been beautifully restored.

It is located on the northeast corner of the San Pedro Chapel Complex, on Ft Lowell Road, Tucson, Arizona.

The flowers are blooming on the roadsides and it is a little bit cooler during the day. Oracle, AZ, north of Tucson, is a small town with an elevation of about 4500′. It gets snow in the winter, and is always a little cooler than Tucson. The mountains in the distance are spectacular.

The Oracle Inn Steakhouse is a great place to stop for lunch. It has a rich history and good food. The bar has a dance floor with live music.
