I've shared some of these photos on Facebook already. These are actually from two separate trips up to that area.
First, I got Jeff out of town for a day trip to celebrate his birthday. We rode the chairlift at snowbowl and enjoyed some wonderful views.
We drove over to Sunset crater too. It is a pretty cool place. This is Apache Plume. It has regular white flowers first and then they turn into these plumes.
A different day, I finally went to Wupatki. There are several different ruins in the area. They are really cool! This is the Lomatke ruin. These were Hopi or Pueblo Indians.
You can see the ruin on top of the hill in the background. This one is called the Citadel. Then there is this smaller ruin in front.
There was an amazing storm going on around me with beautiful views of shadow and light, cliffs and mountains in the distance.
