We passed this saguaro cactus on the way, and I managed to get a picture of what they did to it! For some reason it is braced. We found a few like this. I think it was rotting at the bottom, and they brace it up until the plant is able to rejuvenate itself and support the entire plant again.... sounds good right!
As we were driving along Johnny said "Hey, look at the cotton field!", so of course I grab the camera and fire off another shot in the dark!
This next picture is part of the chain of mountains south of Phoenix, it was one of the larger ones....
At the summit, you will find this lookout, which is called the Dobbins Lookout. Thousands of people have made the trek up here and all were rewarded with the view
This is one of the pics I got up top, you can see the downtown portion of Phoenix off in the centre of the picture. There was no cloud cover on the day, but there was some brownish smog over Phoenix... :-((
Pat wanted here picture taken with a cactus! Judy took this one.
This is a view of a nice red mountain on the far side of Phoenix's Airport...
Pat grabbed my camera and shot this picture looking north west up the mountain chain that protects Phoenix on the south side!
John and Pat taking in the view from up top!
You can use the camera's auto timer and end up with a picture with everyone in it! I got out my super tele-photo lens and took and picture of downtown Phoenix with an airplane directly over the downtown if you look close.... it is on it's final approach to the airport for a landing.... yes, it made it!
Here is Johnny taking a break and inspecting the stone building on top of the mountain. People like to climb all over it...
This picture is one of my favorites of the mountains, and will end off the blog for tonight! Bedtime is near. It is looking west from up top!
Tomorrow I will post some pictures of the hockey game we went to Saturday. It was a blast! Computer will not co-operate tonight!
