The cold winter morning air causing mist to rise off the Salt River. The Canyon cliff wall’s reflection on the mirror surface of the river was a majestic sight!! *******************************************📷@exploringAZ *********************************************Location: Salt River, Just below Saguaro Lake, Arizona at Salt River, Arizona


The setting Moon behind the red rock of Mount McDowell (AKA Red Mountain) gives an almost extra terrestrial feeling. The Salt River Canyon was very cold this morning (32°) causing steam to rise from the surface. It was a beautiful morning out enjoying the beautiful Arizona landscape. *******************************************📷@exploringAZ *********************************************Location: Salt River, AZ ***************************** at Salt River, Arizona


Sunrise from McDowell Sonoran Preserve. We started riding in the dark so we could summit before sunrise. The clouds made for a less vivid typical Arizona sunrise but the rays of sun coming from the spaceship shaped cloud over Fountain Hills was pretty awesome. *********************************************📷 @exploringAZ *********************************************Location:Andrews-Kinsey Trail, McDowell Sonoran Preserve, Fountain Hills, AZ *********************************************Feb 16, 2019 ********************************************* at McDowell Sonoran Conservancy

Happy Birthday Arizona!! Arizona is the 48th state and last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the Union, achieving statehood on February 14, 1912, coinciding with Valentine's Day. ***************************** Location: Mesa AZ ***************************** 📷 @exploringAZ at Mesa, Arizona


A lone Agave Stalk rising toward Heaven. This beautiful scene was captured along the Superstition Ridgeline trail last month. A shadow of concern was cast on this view as the sun was setting and we still had hours of hiking left but only minutes of daylight remaining. Luckily we finished the hike 3 hours later with no injury. As I took this picture I remember thinking that I should be hiking not stopping to take pictures. Now that the hike is over I’m glad I stopped to take this photo. ********************************************* Location: Superstition Wilderness Arizona ********************************************📷 @exploringaz at Superstition Mountains

The sunset tonight was an Arizona classic. This photo was taken from the top of a parking garage in Scottsdale as I was waiting for my car to charge.
