Our vacation in Arizona was over and it was time to head back to Phoenix to catch our afternoon flight home to Florida. We took I-17 straight down from Flagstaff. The drive was amazing (I’m comparing it to our years of driving between Atlanta and Tampa). I kept taking pictures through the window while Brett was driving. Long winding road with very few billboards. My favorite sign was the picture of the elk crossing but I was disappointed. We didn’t see a single one.
As we got closer to Phoenix, the Saguaro cactus were all along the road.
On the plane, I saw several areas with these big circles. I’m assuming they have something to do with agriculture. Anyone have any ideas?
We made it back to reality and the hot steamy city of Tampa. I already miss northern Arizona. Some day we’ll get back there.
What a wonderful journey home. Lots of interesting things to see for sure. I love that part of the US and hope to visit it again next year sometime, keeping fingers crossed 🙂
Beautiful shots! Yes, I think those are crops. I always assume they are round like that because of those big sprinkler bars on wheels that go around in a circle as they water.
Glad you flew out of Phoenix and had a chance to see some of “my” terrain, at least close to where I live. I enjoyed our drive back from N. AZ last summer for similar reasons…seeing the saguaros again is always a delight. Yes, those are irrigation circles. Glad you enjoyed your N AZ visit and made it home safe & sound. (I know those elk signs are so annoying when no elk appear! :-))
Glad you enjoyed your holidays adn are home safe and sound. Love the shot from the plane.
