Pier 39 was more of a walk-past attraction than an actual stop, although we did enjoy it. We were only there a few minutes as we walked around the area. You can get kibble to feed the sea lions, and it is cute to watch them play and bark all around the pier.

We were told by several friends that the Fisherman's Warf is a must-see. It was loud, crammed full of people, and very smelly. Everything was overpriced and gaudy. It would be an OK place if you just wanted some San Francisco souvenirs, I guess. We did not enjoy it at all.

We stumbled upon the scenic byway through the Superstition Mountains on accident. They were amazing! We saw huge lizards, beautiful trees, enormous cacti, and all kinds of other wildlife. It was jaw-dropping. The drive took a little over two hours. We saw many trails leading up from the byway and plan to return to hike some.

This was a let-down. We expected a Western-style arid garden. Instead, it looked just like the hundreds of miles of desert we had just driven through. There weren't many of the large Saguaros, and the rock formations were nothing spectacular. The state parks cost a few dollars, but are much nicer than this.

We drove through the Sonoran Desert on our way between two towns. It was a very picturesque area. There were historic markers along the road where you can stop and read about the desert and the events that have happened there.
