Day 25 - Mesa, AZ - Live Arizona Opry Dinner Show

It rained again last night so in the morning we decided to drive the Bush Highway Scenic Road and return to Mesa by the Usery Pass Road.  We saw Red Mountain and many different cacti.

For lunch, we decided to try Waldo’s BBQ to see if it was as good as Texas BBQ.  It was very tasty especially the pulled pork since we usually don’t get that in Texas.  We did; however, miss having pickles and onions with the meal.  

We then visited the Commemorative Air Force (CAF)-Arizona Wing Museum in Mesa.  The CAF is dedicated to the preservation of WWII warplanes.  Of special interest is Sentimental Journey, a restored WWII B-17 bomber in flying condition.

We arrived at the Arizona Opry Dinner Theater for an unforgettable evening of music variety.  The Barleen family did a great job of entertaining us with special guest Bill Wells.  George Staerkel, the music director, has a 5 octave vocal range and is comfortable with almost any instrument.
