Post Cards From Phoenix

Sometimes it's about the sights...
Phoenix Sunrise


Sometimes it's about the feel of the sun on your winter-pale midwestern skin...
Palm Trees and Sunshine


Sometimes it's about the heavenly scent of orange blossoms...
Orange Tree (With Functional Sundial in the Background)


And sometimes it's about the surprises...
Those Blooming Bushes are Rosemary!!
(...if only I could send you the smell of sunbaked rosemary accompanying you for an entire block of your walk back to the hotel...)

  3. Looks divine! Now, go climb Camelback Mountain for Jr.'s dad and me, okay? :) We were in Phoenix years ago, and enjoyed hiking up there thoroughly--as well as touring Taliesin and hearing about Frank Lloyd Wright.

  4. Susan, I'll have to climb Camelback Mtn. another time. Today I'll go hear Greg Mortenson and Barbara Morgan (the IRA closing keynotes), then I'm off to the Chihuly exhibit at the Desert Botanical Gardens!
