Tucson's beautiful Catalina Mountains are in the background. In the foreground is another kind of mountain - a gravel mountain at Acme Gravel on 22nd Street. It's quite a weird experience to go down into the quarry area - feels so isolated but it is on a main street.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
