Arizona Highways Friday Fotos

 I've been honored to have several photos selected lately by Arizona Highways Friday Fotos weekly challenge on their Facebook Page. 

Each week on Wednesday, Arizona Highways gives the theme for that week and the deadline is Thursday by 7:00 p.m. to enter 2 photos with that theme.

August 6th was Arizona National Parks and I had both of my photos selected that day; so surprised! To have a photo selected to be in the top 5 is such an honor and my cattle photo from Pipe Springs National Monument was in 4th place. My photo of Casa Grande Ruins National Monument was also selected.

On August 20th the theme was "taken on the trail" and my photo of the one of the hiking trails in Red Rock State Park was selected.

September 3rd the theme was "wearing white after Labor Day" my photo of a Native American competing in the Buckskin Dance was selected.

On September 17th the them was "tall trees" and the photo I took of Willow Springs Lake on the Rim was chosen.

Greer, Arizona Adventure

Rented a cabin in Greer, AZ for a couple of days and WOW, what a wonderful adventure! I was hoping to photograph Elk and never saw one! We saw a lot of deer and was so excited to come across a small herd of Big Horn Sheep!!!

Every afternoon it rained and it was in the 70's the entire time we were there. Loved the weather, lush vegetation and wildlife. Couldn't believe all the meadows and fields of wildflowers. So want to move up there :-)

Here are some of the photos I took on this fabulous trip.
