The Sonoran Desert

Amazing place! Tucson is surrounded by the world’s finest examples of primo Sonoran desert in the form of Saguaro National Monument (West and East). The Desert Drive through Saguaro National Monument East is particularly pretty.

We took in the sunset, which, because of the lack of cloud was flat and a little disappointing, although when it is completely clear it takes on an impressive look of its own.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but Tucson really is a fantastic place to live! 😀
