Avra Valley Jaunt
Driving west of Tucson on a cloudy, sometimes rainy day, we saw magnificent chunks of mountain in fractal silhouette against skies filled with ultra blue holes that emerged from giant cumulus puffs of cloud. This view, altered into an old West look, was taken on Red Rock Road, out near the Silver Bell mine.
I asked the gentleman if he was a researcher, by any chance, and he replied, "no, we just like cactus." He gave me a few tips of where to see other crazy type saguaros.
When he offered to take our photo with the cactus, we quickly said "yes" and this photo is the result.
We enjoyed a lovely meal which capped off some delightful days spent with Richard and Heidi in the Desert Southwest.
