Unusual weather for the desert southwest… This was taken during a drive to Mt. Hopkins, Amado, AZ, USA.
It’s been a long time since I played in snow… my hands, feet and nose were frozen even though I dressed warmly. It was a wonderful sight to see! But, thank goodness our winters are fairly mild! That’s why I am here!!!

This image has been featured in the following groups:

A long-time passion, I’ve held a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. Capturing “the moment” is my goal, whether it be people, wildlife or a beautiful Arizona sunset. I am originally from NYC but now live in the desert southwest.
Thank you for viewing my images… I hope that you enjoy!
