Tubac Arizona

My Wife and I took a drive to Tubac so she could do some art shopping. I never leave my camera at home when we go to this great little town filled with art, she shops and I shoot.

Tubac has been home to at least five distinct cultures: the Hohokam between 300 and 1400 AD; the Tohono O'odham ("Desert People" called Papago by the Spanish) arrived sometime in the 1500's; the Spaniards arrived with Father Campos in 1726, according to a baptismal record; Mexico claimed it during the 1821 Mexican War of Independence; and it was bought by the United States under the 1853 Gadsden Purchase.
