With our arrival in Phoenix our first destination was the Wigwam, Arizona Resort in Litchfield Park. Over many years this resort has earned a five star rating and soon after our arrival we had no reason to question that.
After registering a guide in a golf course told us to follow him in our car and so led us to our room and parking spot. Our room was the size of a small cottage with a front door adjacent to a private patio with table and chairs as well as a back door just steps away from our car.
Inside the room included two queen size beds, a huge bath with both walk in shower and huge tub, a walk in closet as well as a bar with counter, sink and refrigerator.
The architecture and decor of Wigwam is early Spanish southwest and this theme is carried on to room decor as well with open beamed ceilings.
The next thing we learned about Wigwam was its huge size when with golf course appears to take up a good portion of Litchfield Park which is principally a high end residential area of Phoenix.
The purpose of our trip to Phoenix was to, in a few days, visit and learn about just what the Greater Phoenix area has to offer the visitor.
Once past the usual heavy traffic getting out of the Los Angeles area our drive on Interstate 10 was easy and with much to admire in the immense desert landscape we passed.
From the San Fernando Valley where we live the trip took just six and one half hours.
More about our visit tomorrow.
