Despite the general overcast nature to the weather on my trip to Tucson, I got some lovely memories of the mountains and desert.
We passed this mountain on the way up to Phoenix, where we visited the Phoenix Zoo and went to dinner at Pappadeaux, which, by the way, had the most wonderful food I have eaten in just about forever. Fried alligator is amazing, and the New Zealand King Salmon Florentine, man, I’m in heaven just remembering the taste.
It was very cool to see all the snow on the mountains, with the burnished red-gold of the desert below it.
The sun came and went throughout the day. These shots are up at Kartchner Caverns where we toured the Big Room. This particular part of the caverns isn’t always open due to the bats, so it was neat to see it. We love touring caves. Next visit we will have to see the Rotunda/Throne Tour which Tony says is even more fascinating.
Tony is really taking his photography seriously!
Sometimes I find it astonishing that my son is a grown up. He is going to be twenty-nine in January! How is that possible?
The sunset was rather ominously gorgeous.
Next time I visit the desert though, I hope I don’t have to wear my winter coat.
