Sun City, AZ Parking Lot Show

Sun City is largely a retirement community here in Arizona filled with golf carts.  It is not uncommon to share the roads with a highly modified golf cart and a guy in a leisure suit.   Ok, no leisure suit are rare, let ‘s just say golf attire and a wicker hat.

We decided to take a detour while running some errands one Sunday to drive past a show we saw listed in a local events section.   Phoenix has many of these show that are frequented by locals looking to spend a couple hours chatting with friends.  Sometimes you find a rare gem but it is typically filled with a mix of 1950-1970′s hot rods or muscle cars.

Below are a couple of stand-outs from the show.  Check out the Photo Gallery for more pictures.

It’s Hot Out There!

Not really-more like a 114 degrees–but it is a dry heat.  The Jeep’s thermometer was just a little out of whack this afternoon.

122 degrees

Faces in Places–Desert Edition

You can find faces in almost any place whether it was created in nature or by man.   A current American Express commercial demonstrates this dozens of times in just 60 seconds.   Here are a few a faces we found on Saguaro cacti on a recent hike at Spur Cross Park.

Saguaro cactus can live 200 years and don’t even grow an arm until they have hit 75 years in age.  You can imagine these faces have seen a lot of things change in their lives.

A Saguaro eating a boot is the best way to describe this one.

And finally, a Saguaro face so hideous and evil that I dare show you.  So instead this photo shows off it’s magnificent size and arms backlit with the sun for your safety.

Check out the Photo Gallery of the hike here and enjoy the desert views.  As always keep your eye focused on your surroundings and watch out for all of those faces just watching the world go by.

Out in the AZ Wilderness

No Cars, No Motorcycles….Just our feet to carry us out to this view. This photo was taken about halfway through a 14 mile hike in the White Tank Mountains of Arizona.
