Full Moon Over Tucson on Saturday Night

Full moon over Tucson from Gates Pass: Mike in Tucson, Mortgage Lender

~ Full Moon Over Tucson ~

Actually, Sunday will be the full moon. 

From Gates Pass this evening, though, you would have been hard put to tell the difference.  The setting sun painted the tops of the mountains in the foreground with its deepest color of the day. 

You really do have to come visit this place sometime this winter.  It's magical.  It really is.


I'm Mike in Tucson, your preferred Tucson Mortgage Lender.

WOW, Mike, that is my favorite of yours so far.  What a great shot.  I just went outside with the puppies, and it's almost like noon - it's so bright out.

Mike - THanks for the photo, and the thought that some of us might visit during the winter is great, but airline travel is becoming a real pain.
