Coucher du Soleil

Last week was very windy. 
 It helped to generate some spectacular sunsets. I took this picture from my backyard Thursday night.  Dr Desert Flower and I headed to the Clarendon Hotel Saturday night to watch the amazing sunset from the roof top bar.    

The Clarendon was hosting several functions and was quite crowded (a 1 hour wait for dinner) so we headed over to Fez instead, in the middle of the Gayborhood - it's not a derogatory term, it's a correctly termed geographic location, and it's used by the Visitor's Bureau.

I heard last year on the radio, by a photographer and naturalist who local NPR was interviewing 'It's nearly criminal to be inside at dusk during the monsoon here in Arizona. You're missing out on some of the most beautiful and fleeting sites you'll ever see.  

Heck, it's even featured on our flag: 

Last week is probably the final week of +100F temperatures here.  It was down in the 90s Sunday - cool enough to clean up and organize the mess I had in the garage for 4 hours, without dehydrating.
