december 2016

I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday season! Now that things have settled down a bit, I thought I’d share a few photos from around here this month. Winter in Arizona is beautiful, many days are sunny and the daytime temperatures here in the central highlands (we’re about a mile high in elevation) can range from below freezing to quite comfortable. This December gave us a nice variety, from almost-don’t-need-a-jacket on a day we took a short hike, to a gorgeous white Christmas.

Wishing you the best in 2017! Happy New Year!
