looking more like late fall rather August.

    We are currently on an east coast road trip, while back in Tucson, the monsoon season continues creating flash flood conditions. In August 2014, we had heavy downpours in Sabino Canyon. Since I’m not in Tucson, and there will not be posting rushing Sabino creeek waters, I’m reblogging that post. — kenne
