A pretty lively day to say the least. Al and I headed south from Tucson towards the Mexican border. Here we really experienced some great monsoon almost tropical storms which unleashed vast amounts of precipitation. Most of the roads in these areas carry signs informing drivers not to pass when flooded…I can see why! The precip was unbelievably intense and hardly moving. Typical flash flooding material.
We meandered back towards Tucso throughout the day stopping for the odd photo shoot when storms and events arose. We also drone through the beautiful Saguaro National Park which is littered with of cactii and is so photogenic, especially with storms kicking off in the background.
We then the headed up to the top of a local mountain call ‘A’ which gave a view of Tucson to die for. 180 field of view. We even saw a small haboob or dust storm at the end of the day rolling across Tucson.
Here area few select photos:-
