Tucson is surrounded by magnificent, protected park lands. Recently I took a drive through Saguaro National Park East to see if I could photograph some cacti during a rainstorm. Although cloudy and overcast, the sky didn't deliver rain. Here is a beautiful saguaro skeleton.
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. (:
