What's amazing about Phoenix is that stuff like this can be seen on just a short drive east of town. Now, it's not Grand Falls or anything spectacular in the sense of landmarks or stunning vistas...but if you take the time to stop, get out of the car, walk down a short path and look can see beautiful scenes everywhere.

This was a short distance from a pull-off on Apache Trail, a road that takes you to Canyon Lake and eventually Roosevelt Lake. My buddy Bryan (Whom I made famous yesterday) and I made all kinds of stops along the way to Canyon Lake to snap photos of the desert landscapes mixed with the monsoon clouds of the afternoon.

That was essentially the goal of the summer and my "wanderings with the Arizona monsoon." This coming week I'm headed further northeast into the pine trees for a little camping and hope to get a different angle on the monsoons with the evergreens and mountain lakes.

Definitely a good idea to see the larger version if you want...on my blog today:

    I'm going to have to come up with another word besides WOW to use for your photos! But WOW always seems to fit! Another amazing capture. (oh, and of course I have the 'secret' link to the larger version, but others don't----you should include that link in your narrative. Just sayin'........) ☺
