Amanda and I decided to try something new for Labor Day. Rather than risk getting stuck on the freeway for hours upon hours, we opted for a vacation a little closer to home. We stayed at a great bed & breakfast in the small mining community of Globe, AZ. Noftsger Hill Inn was Globe's first elementary school. The "classrooms" were huge, probably half the size of our home with 20-foot ceilings, and decorated with beautiful antique furniture. The smell of breakfast in the morning was all the motivation we needed to get up and explore!
