Madera Canyon

A random road trip 45 minutes south of Tucson led us to the magical park of Madera Canyon.  Christmas music playing in the background during a cloudy and cold day made this Sunday feel like the holiday season. Here are some pics to show off our "fall color" during the holiday season:)
I love this park for the branch structure.  It's a truly unique place to find some really different kinds of trees.



Several bed and breakfast are located along the road.

Happy Holiday!!!

White Bark tree = Arizona Sycamore

Thanks for the nice shots of Arizona White Oak, Arizona Madrone, Alligator Juniper, and those chilly scenes. Today started sunny and mild, but your weather blew right in after noon, and now it is c-c-cold! Hope you got some rain...

The tree forms in these photos are captivating! Very sculptural. :)

Wow, not only do the trees reflect Autumn, so do the clouds! Nice photos - I think I need to put a sweater on now!
