Tucson south into Medera Canyon Ten dawn to dusk photos I shot during a late February day in 2012
6:20 am MST. An early dawn in late February looking east into the rising sun from my bedroom window in South Tucson.
The snow never melts off this high-elevation mountain standing just 21 miles north of Mexico. The teperature that day hovered around 72F. The air was pristine and not a single human sound. Not even the hum above from an aircraft.
As you descend rapidly into the desert and valley, park your truck, enter the desert and walk about, strange sights abound.
Like this series of huge Angle of Repose pyrimids guarding the Valley's floor as they have now for centuries.
Further north and higher and earlier from where I am now, the desert, this verticle boulder tried blocking my path.
Growing sleepy under the warm sun, I looked for a place to lie down for a nap on the desert floor.
I lay down here and used my sweatshirt for a pillow. All very comfy.
Then late in the afternoon ants, small, black, non-biters but annoying never-the-less, aroused me to open my eyes which immeadiatly spotted this half moon rising.
