This weekend we headed to Payson, AZ to beat the heat.  As Coloradoans, it’s hard to believe that we are still in triple digits at the end of August here in the valley!

The trip turned into a wonderful adventure rescuing two dogs, seeing Tonto Natural Bridge, hiking, and enjoying 3 (dog friendly) local restaurants. Gabby, our Chihuahua/ Italian Greyhound mix, loved relaxing on the restaurant patios, sniffing around the grassy courtyard of our hotel, and cooling off in the creek (multiple times, along with the kids) on the Horton Springs Trail.

If you get the chance to visit Tonto Natural Travertine Bridge we highly suggest you take it! The pictures just do not do this natural phenomenon justice. Nathan has worked with travertine in his remodels many times so this was the perfect opportunity to see it in its natural habitat… in the wild, if you will. 😉

If you have any questions about travertine or remodeling please let us know! We will reply within 24 hours. Email nathan@homeimproveofaz.com or michelle@homeimproveofaz.com or call us at 480-249-2703.
