Santa Catalina Mountains, northeast of Tucson, Arizona
“The low sun of the desert autumn and winter months brings a rich kaleidoscope of color and deep shadows during late afternoon in the Santa Catalina Mountains bordering Tucson. Southern Arizona is a world of endless sunsets and “character” cloud patterns. Here we can get color and drama in both directions, not only in the west, but also looking back east toward the mountains catching the last glow of magenta, orange and purple. As a desert storm clears bold shadows define steep cliffs across Pusch Ridge setting off tall sentinels of distant saguaros catching the last, golden light. Previous rain creating meandering rivulets through the wash on the valley floor leaves a spiderweb dusting of overnight snow at higher elevation on the peaks, always a striking, visual treat in the desert. What a serene time to walk a desert wash!” Darcie Peet
