But the one piece that all the garden-goers seemed to be flocking to at night was the Saffron Tower. This piece is about the height of a two-story building and is a wonder to behold in person...by picture you just can't get same scope.
Thoughts went through my head as I gathered with the crowd around the tower: This looks like my high school bonfire! Is this what the burning bush in the Bible looked like? Has E.T phoned home and they're coming to get him? It was oddly, wonderfully weird. So much so that people were taking pictures with flash regularity for complete strangers. A community was being born of the folks surrounding the Chihuly Saffron Tower. World peace was possible.This was our last night to be spent in Arizona. It was memorable. Certainly magical. And it really helped us to balance a difficult trip with a good experience following many challenges.
