SkyWatch Friday / Sunset on the California and Arizona Stateline!




It been 2 weeks since our road trip to Arizona from the Los Angeles area. The sun was setting as we were driving on Interstate 40 in Needles, California. I pulled off the highway to capture these shots! Then onward to Williams, Arizona then Tusayan at the Grand Canyon. It was late and COLD when we got in that night! What a wonderful road-trip it was!

What a beautiful glow in that first one!
I would have pulled over too. :)
Sounds like you had a marvelous time. I'm going to have to come back and catch up on your posts to see what I've missed.

Great captures. The colors are soft yet I can almost feel the chill in the air since the sky was so clear.

Thanks for the visit. Have a wonderful weekend!

I love these shots of the sun setting behind the mountain. Your bench and reflection shots are also wonderful.
