High Desert Green

Almost exactly 9 years ago, Joan and I "discovered" Southern Arizona wine country. As we ventured down SR 83, we traveled through a monsoon rain storm complete with rainbow, nearby lightning strikes, brief hailstorm, intoxicating smells of wet desert and brilliant Arizona sun as the rain passed us by.

The hills were green - incandescent green waving grasses punctuated by small clusters of flowers of many hues. It has been many years since this valley looked that spectacular. This year is one of them. The grape vines are happy. In fact all things growing seem to be happy at present. I suspect you will be too when you make the trip.
