Sonoita Grasslands, Arizona

Sonoita Grasslands, Arizona


I can’t always make it to some place high in elevation when I get too hot in Tucson.  Yet not even an hour away at an elevation of 5000 ft, you can feel the difference between the sun-baked concrete jungle of the city and the coolness of the grasslands.  The area surrounding Sonoita is rolling hills dotted with oak savannahs and cienegas.  In the distance of this image are the Mustang mountains on the left and the Huachuca mountains on the right. The area is almost completely surrounded by mountain ranges, including the scenic Santa Rita mountains. I enjoyed a quick trip down this way to enjoy the evening with the windows rolled down before I headed to the furnace of the city.

  1. That is a great picture. I visited Arizona in March and the weather was just perfect!

  2. Very nice – I especially like how the two prominent trees in the foreground echo the peaks along the horizon.
