The Ciulla boys stayed at the historic Valley Ho Hotel during their visit to Scottsdale Arizona in July.  Years ago, many celebrities: Bing Crosby, Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh and Zsa Zsa Gabor were guests at the Valley Ho.  Did you know that Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood celebrated their 1957 wedding at the Valley Ho? Yep! The Valley Ho recently underwent a substantial renovation, and it is considered one of the best preserved mid-century hotels in the country!


Here is just one of the many types of desert plants that received a substantial amount of rainfall during July. The vivid color of this plant is a reminder of how colorful the desert can be during the monsoon rainfall!
