Arizona, April 2023

I visited friends in Arizona in April. First I went to Apache Junction, east of Phoenix, where I stayed at the Goldfield Gateway B&B. Then I went to Chino Valley, a few hours north of Phoenix, and visited a few other places. [More AZ photos here.]

On the way

Flying into Arizona I could see the Grand Canyon from the plane.

At the PHX airport

I can rarely resist looking for things to photograph at airports…

Apache Junction

My regular B&B where I stay has a front-row view of the Superstition Mountains.

One day we drove out to the nearby Lost Dutchman State Park:

Leaving Phoenix

Driving up to Chino Valley, the desert floor was bright yellow with flowers after an unusually wet winter.

Chino Valley

In Chino I spent time hiking up Tanner Mountain.


We spent some time on my last day there in Prescott, about an hour from Chino Valley. This first image is of the Granite Dells which we passed through on our way to town.
