Time for a new post. These are some pictures taken loop 101 and highway 17 as we left Phoenix on Sunday, Nov. 28. It was a cloudy morning - almost looked like it could rain or snow, but that does not happen often in Phoenix. I was impressed with the roadside landscaping and art work on the walls along these highways so I took some pics in anticipation of this new post. I love the Saguaro cactus along the roads also in Phoenix and on the outskirts of the city. the Saguaro begin about 40-50 miles to the East of Phoenix. I don't know when they begin or end to the west of Phoenix. This is the only place I have seen the Saguaro. They are amazing. They are protected in Arizona and are not allowed to be cut down or moved.
