Arizona Rainforest

Pumphouse Wash, Arizona

I was chilling out during a monsoon earlier this summer.  The rain let up so I walked about a bit.  Colors always seem to be a bit more vibrant after it rains and I was curious what I’d find. I stood over the edge of Pumphouse and soaked in the fresh moist air and then ran back to my truck to get my camera.  The sun was playing peekaboo through the clouds and low lying mist was washing through the…well, wash.  I exposed one sheet of film and kept my fingers crossed (as I always do) on how it might turn out.

Sunrise, White Mountains

I took Jade on her first backpack into the Mt Baldy wilderness in east central Arizona.  We hiked about 16 miles over 3 days to keep it nice and easy. Personally, I don’t like going much farther than 5-8 miles in a day.  This was the meadow which we camped over the first night and was about 5 miles in on the route.  Morning, a cup of tea, and pretty light make for the start of a great day as we hiked to the top of Mt Baldy at about 11,400 ft.
