Flashback Photo of the Day: 03/14/2005 at Saguaro National Park, Arizona

Flashback Photo of the Day: 03/14/2005 - I've been sad with the thought that my parents didn't make it to Arizona this winter. So it is a pleasure reflecting back to my very first Arizona visit to see them six years ago and sharing sunset with them in Saguaro National Park. What a sunset we had on Signal Hill overlooking the forest of Saguaro across the valley.

It is hard to imagine that after this spectacular

early evening calm sunset, we drove back north to the Phoenix area in a huge sand/dust storm on I-10 that reduced visibility at night down to maybe 100' at most! I can see how terrible things can happen driving in those conditions. (all photos from the western unit of Saguaro National Park, Arizona)
