♫ There's a place I go to
00:06
♫ Where no one knows me
00:09
♫ It's not lonely
00:11

♫ Lose every sense of time
00:18
♫ Take it all in and wake up that small part of me
00:22
♫ Day to day I'm blind to see and find how far
00:26

00:46
All right, we're here.
00:48
[Chelsea] You guys are all looking so tan.
00:50
I like it.
00:51
[Gabe] We work on it a lot.
00:52
How are you all on the course?
00:54
[Wes] Legit.
00:56
Golfing with these guys is super fun.
00:58
[Man] Like he was in perfect shape.
00:59
[Man] The course was great, but also
01:00
at the actual resort like with the hotel in the backdrop
01:03
with the mountains right behind it,
01:06
it was pretty incredible.
01:08
[Man] Hole three, though,
01:09
the whole canyon wall was covered in cactus.
01:13
[Man] Short of par three, it was a lot of fun.
01:15
[Man] We ready? Yep.
01:18
(putt popping ball)
01:19
[Man] Could it be?
01:22
[Man] It's too short.
01:23
Here's the bet.
01:25
My trick shot is up there,
01:26
if you get inside of it,
01:27
you're off the hook.
01:28
You don't have to skydive.
01:29
But if you don't, on the other hand,
01:31
you're jumping out of that plane with me.
01:33
Deal?
01:34
I mean, sure.
01:35
(lively banjo music) (putt pops against ball)
01:39
Yes!
01:40
Not going skydiving
01:42
We've got two great Tom Fazio designed golf courses,
01:44
The Mountain and The Canyon,
01:46
both got great views,
01:47
the mountain, the desert.
01:48
The golf course is in perfect condition,
01:50
the most popular in town.
01:51
We're absolutely proud of them.
01:53
[Man] We gave you a couple of tips
01:54
and you were able to go from slicing it way out of play
01:58
to like...
01:59
[Chelsea] Now I wish I went. The hooking.
02:01
[Man] Like for real. Now I wish I went.
02:02
[Man] Line drive.
02:03
[Woman] I'm impressed. It was.
02:04
[Man] It was a line drive.
02:05
[Man] No, it was fun.
02:06
It's fun.
02:07
[Man] Golf is fun.
02:08
[Chelsea] Yeah?
02:08
[Man] How was your day?
02:09
[Chelsea] No, my day was great.
02:11
The rooms at the Omni were super beautiful.
02:14
[Man] Right?
02:15
[Woman] Beautiful. Yeah, so nice.
02:16
[Man] Did you get in the pool today?
02:17
[Chelsea] I looked at it.
02:18
I walked around the whole grounds.
02:19
It was really, really beautiful.
02:20
(lively guitar music)
02:31
[Women] Thank you.
02:32
Hopefully, the Cafe Poca refers everyone.
02:33
This is the menu that I have to offer you today.
02:36
(speaking Spanish)
02:39
is a burgundy red, chile blend.
02:41
It provides a broad range in flavor to chiles
02:43
with a mild spice.
02:45
My name is Jeff, if you need anything,
02:46
just let me know, okay?
02:47
[All] Thanks, Jeff.
02:48
I've cooked a chile or two but probably not nearly
02:50
as many chiles as she's cooked, though.
02:52
This is Mexican food from all the regions of Mexico.
02:56
I change the menu, would you believe it, twice a day.
02:59
[Man] I got the best thing on the menu.
03:00
I'm gonna go with (speaking Spanish).
03:02
(Laughing) The fun thing about it is
03:04
you're sort of like sitting at my table,
03:07
so each and every one of them
03:09
will be a little bit different.
03:11
(light-hearted guitar music) ♫ Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
03:29
Astronomy is really big in Arizona
03:31
because we have very dark, transparent skies.
03:34
It's 47% of all known near-earth asteroids
03:37
were discovered here.
03:39
Did you guys want to take a look at Saturn?
03:40
[All] Yes.
03:42
[Zach] You can clearly see the rings.
03:43
[Man] That is so cool.
03:45
(lively guitar music)
03:48
♫ Then I heard him say
03:50
♫ Come a little bit closer to your man kind man
03:53
♫ Baby come come
03:55
♫ Come a little bit closer
03:57
♫ I'm all alone
03:58
♫ And the night is so long
04:01
♫ Oh the night is so long
04:06
♫ Well we started to dance.
04:08
♫ Take it all in and wake up
04:10
♫ That small part of me
04:12
♫ Day to day I'm blind to see
04:14
