Arizona Memories

I was thinking about and missing living in Tucson, AZ recently (and feeling that familiar, old saudade again). So I looked through some old photos and decided to share a couple. (I'm pretty sure I haven't shared either of these two before.)

These were both taken in the wintertime. I think they were on different days, yet both days happened to both be unusually cloudy (or partly so); Tucson has, probably, close to 300 days of sunshine per year. 

These were taken in either late January or early February 2000, when I'd gone out to explore the beautiful scenery in the relative "coolness" of winter.

I love the saguaro cactus "sentries" in the first photo.

Saguaro National Park, western

Near Sabino Canyon

So truly an "Under the Desert Sky" post today.

Arizona is beautiful. I hope you share that same likeness for Iowa too. Each state is different but each has its own iconic identity.
