5 Shots: Storm Brewing in Sycamore Canyon

Family has come to visit which means a trip up to the plateau for vista views, music, and Jim’s famous foil dinners. No one should visit Arizona without an evening out in the wilderness for an authentic experience of the Southwest. It’s our favorite way to entertain guests. Which shot do you like best?

1. Sycamore Wilderness
2. Wilderness Road
3. Foil dinner around the campfire
4. Rain is coming
5. A hole in the sunset
6. Downpour in Sedona

    • The storm dumped. We were far enough away to avoid the rain. But the wind turned and soon big drips fell on us and we had to end the evening early.

  1. I like the campfire shot, as it gives me the feel of your trip. Such views are unknown here, so they are all most impressive of course. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Jeez Cindy – you ask the hard questions. I went through them a number of times and my choice is ‘Downpour in Sedona’.

    • Standing on the ledge with the valley before us while watching the rain pour was a treat. It is hard to tell but a band of sunlight lot the bushes in the foreground giving it an added color. Thank you for voting, GP.

  4. A Hole in the Sunset brings a sign of hope. And Wilderness Road could be both a title and a cover for a Zane Grey book. And all of them are beautiful.

  6. The scenery is gorgeous and storm shots great. I like the campfire best though. Camp fire means conversation, singing and eating. πŸ™‚

  7. Ah … the Spring rains. Always welcome in this dusty town.
    We seem to be a bit behind you. Maybe that’s normal here?

  8. The colours are amazing in the first one. One of the things I miss most about Johannesburg is the joy of a massive highveld storm in the afternoon.

    • Ahh, I bet, Abbi. One day I hope to visit your city. My daughter-in-law and family are visiting from S. Africa right now as I speak. I get a kick out of the accent. πŸ˜‰
