Sunset In Tucson: Giant Saguaros and Palm Trees

Twilight in Tucson, Arizona

We've had some beautiful sunsets this week in Tucson. 

Palm trees aren't native to the Arizona Sonoran Desert, but they thrive here if they have access to water.  I like the juxtaposition of the Palm Trees in the foreground with the Saguaro Cacti against the backdrop of the Tucson Mountain Range.

If you haven't planned a visit, right now might be the time to do that!
