Arizona Again

This is another sky from our recent trip through Arizona.  I loved how the ground appeared so violet.  I can't tell you how many times on our trip we both said that the landscape looked just like "Arizona Highways" magazine.  Of course it did!

When we travel we try to take as many back roads as possible and only when necessary drive on interstates.  Our drive from San Diego was interstate to eastern California, then when we hit Yuma, Arizona we headed north on hiway 95 to Quartzite.  From there we headed over to hiway 60/89 northeast through Prescott, toward Flagstaff.  Once there we headed further northeast on hiway 160 to Kayenta, which is near Monument Valley in northeast Arizona.  I'd never been to any of these towns before.  It was a beautiful several days.  I am lucky that we have the time to drive and explore the many small towns, state and national parks, and historic sites along the way.  There are certainly an unlimited amount of paintings just waiting for me!

You really capture the beautiful skies of Arizona. The amazing blue of the back mountains is so true to this type of light. Love it.

Beautiful capture of this Arizona vista, Pam. Easy to see why Arizona has "the painted desert."

Hilda, thank you so much! So great to read this first thing in the morning!

Thank you Julie. You're right! The light, in the empty vastness of the west, is amazing!

Sherry, Thank you! The desert is a place of it's own. But, not sure that I'd want to live there!
