Very near my home is National Saguaro Park East. Almost every day, I either run or bike in the park, thoroughly enjoying the beauty of Sonoran Desert, which abounds. Well today, I was running quite late, literally, and by the time my jogging was about complete, the sun was setting on the Tucson mountains in the western sky.
It was at that moment, that I was struck by the beauty of our sunsets here in the Southwest and the thought that no two sunsets are the same, no matter where we might be. How special it is that nature provides us these moments, and that we can see the joining of darkness with light.
In my posted pictures, I have also included a photo showing snow here in the Tucson Valley. Just didn't want our snowbirds to be homesick!
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
