“I love to soar in the boundless sky.
In the vast emptiness of the blue,
my soul rejoices
listening to the soundless music
of the wind.”

Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO), part of the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO), supports the most diverse collection of astronomical observatories on Earth for nighttime optical and infrared astronomy and daytime study of the Sun. Sharing the mountaintop site with the National Solar Observatory, KPNO, founded in 1958, operates three major nighttime telescopes and hosts the facilities of consortia which operate 22 optical telescopes and two radio telescopes. Kitt Peak is located 56 miles southwest of Tucson, AZ, in the Schuk Toak District on the Tohono O’odham Nation.

Red Rock Canyon Panorama blogRed Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Panorama by kenne

The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is an easy 15-mile drive west of Las Vegas, Nevada. Located in the Mojave Desert with a beautiful desert landscape, but as a resident of the Sonoran Desert, I find the Mojave Desert very harsh.  Like most deserts, the higher elevations are much more diverse in plant and animal life. This image was taken near the Visitors Center. A one-way paved loop road, 13 miles long, provides vehicle access to many of the features in the area and to more challenging primitive roads.

Is The Monsoon Season On Its Way?   Leave a comment

Cloud-line Panorama blog-.jpgHaze and Cloud-line, More Humidity In the Air — Panorama by kenne

I was up on Mt. Lemmon today, where they are not allowing any outdoor fires at campsites because the Santa Catalina Mountains are so very dry. Even though it was a hazy day, I took the panorama with the haze and cloud-line showing how moisture is beginning to move into southern Arizona. Hopefully, we will start to see some rain by mid-June.
