Superior, Arizona

In June 2015, I went to see my mother in Superior, Arizona. It’s a funky little mining town along state highway 60, easy to ignore as you drive out of the insanity of the Phoenix basin and into the beautiful Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest. But it’s worth a stop, particularly for the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, on the west side of town. It features beautiful and odd desert plants from around the world; I never miss it when I’m in town. — This visit I arrived a sunset to catch the golden light on the mountains. Breathtaking! And then I snagged a couple portraits of local residents. The next morning it was off to the arboretum, yay, and then helping my mom around her house.

See all my Arizona posts.

Nice person in Portland, Oregon, and beyond.
