And then we were back to sunshine!
For most of the day it was sunny and very cool, especially by Phoenix standards. We did even have a little spell of raindrops on the windshield while in Phoenix, but not enough to even run the wipers.
On the return trip we were treated to the most spectacular sunset between Picacho Peak and Marana (north of Tucson). The mountains to the east were getting rain/snow and the setting sun cast its red hues on the clouds, making it appear like the mountains were on fire.
And the sunset was gorgeous!
These were taken from inside the car, going down the Interstate at 75 mph! The first two I took with my cell phone and the rest with my camera. The cell phone does a really good job and I may end up using that more than my camera! And yes, Bill was driving. If I had been driving, we’d have been camped out on an overpass taking pictures until dark!
This post is part of my Amore Arizona series that I mentioned in my post on Contentment,
in which I write about and post pictures of the things I love about Arizona.
