My husband is an amateur photographer and captured this beautiful photo of the Superstition Mountains, which are located just east of Phoenix, Arizona.  The sun is just coming up…..

Where do you go to view the sunrise or sunset?

    Your husband has a good eye, this coming from another amateur. 🙂
    Still hot there, huh? I need some of that sunshine. I know it will return, I just know it!
    I love the name of the Superstition mountains. Who named them?

    So glad you got your comments up and running! I've been wanting to thank you for all the wonderful information you have been posting. Where were you when I killed three lemon trees in a row? 😉

    sigh. The sunrises in Arizona are the one thing I miss the most. They are the most beautiful I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing this one.

    Thank you all for your comments.

    Rosey, the name comes from early farmers in the area because the Pima Indians were fearful of the mountain, so the farmers then named it Superstition Mountain.

    Annie, have you been able to grow a lemon tree since then? I would be happy to help 😉

    As always, thank you Mary for your nice comments.

    Hmmm… I love sunsets… but when you live in the middle of trees and forest, watching the sun set isn’t a part of everyday life. I suppose we all have our trade offs.
