Monsoon Sunset

Waking up to the sound of raindrops on my window was a pleasant surprise on Tuesday. It was also a treat to see the downpour from my office building's windows that afternoon. The sun made an appearance for a few hours before sunset storms put on a show for us as we watched from Dreamy Draw Recreation Area.

A rainbow was auspicious start to the hike.

We could see the storm over the West Valley just before sunset.

The sky proceeded to get more and more beautiful.

Storm watching/chasing is one of Graham's favorite things to do.

Best of all, the temperature was in the 80s with a breeze that picked up as the storm started building again over central Phoenix.

Here's hoping we get more storms this week!
