Bird On A Rock Art
The image was captured on November 27, 2015 at 7:49 AM during a trip to Saguaro National Park located in southern Arizona on the outskirts of Tucson. The petroglyphs are from the Signal Hill Picnic Area in the Western District of Saguaro National Park. The rock art was created by the prehistoric Hohokam people.
AZ Highways 2014-2015 Photo Contest
Last year my photograph “Five Point Star” was select as one of the AZ Highways finalists.
My “Fence Post Vista” photo was printed in yesterday’s Arizona Republic newspaper. The image was captured from forest road 38 driving down the backside from Mount Lemmon on October 17th 2015 at 2:32 PM. Mount Lemmon is located north of Tucson. At 9,159 feet, it is the highest point in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Mount Lemmon was named for botanist Sara Plummer Lemmon, who trekked to the top of the mountain with her husband and E. O. Stratton, a local rancher, by horse and foot in 1881. It is reported that Mount Lemmon Sky Valley, on the mountain’s northeastern side, receives 200 inches (508 cm) of snow annually.
