God Paints The Prettiest Sunsets In Arizona!

Sunset in Tucson, Arizona

I know I'll get a lot of flak for saying "Arizona"... 

Hawaii has spectacular sunsets.  The Florida Keys are nothing to sneeze at.  But when it comes to the end of day, I'd rather be in Arizona than anywhere else on earth!

I took this photo just before the sun dropped below the mountains to the west.  Our grandkids in New Jersey have gotten nearly a foot of snow this afternoon, and this one's for them.
