Sedona Photos - Summer '09

... and then there was the Sedona portion of the trip. I hadn't originally planned to visit Sedona at all, and it was a last-minute addition to the itinerary. Sure glad I went though, as it is a beautiful spot with a lot of great trails.

I apologize upfront for the subject matter redundancy in the photos below. Clearly I found the red rock against that great western blue sky really compelling. Oh, and of course the weathered trees too - can't have too many photos of those, now can ya?

Tucson Photos (Summer '09)

Spent a week recently in Arizona, mostly just hiking around and looking for critters. It was toasty, but a lot of fun. Split my time pretty evenly between the Tucson area and up around Sedona.

The shots below are from the Tucson area, where I explored some of the trails at Saguaro National Park (west and east districts), Catalina State Park, and Mount Lemmon. The diversity was pretty cool, spending one day in the low desert at Saguaro and then spending the next day at about 9,000 ft. elevation near the peak of Mt. Lemmon. Good stuff.
