Photos by Roger Zellmer of our trip from Fort Dixon to Picacho Peak SP near Tucson Arizona, March 16, 2014. Most photos were shot with a Canon 5d Mark iii using a Tamron 12-24mm f5.0 lens.
It was cold and windy with snow in Fort
Dixon last night and this morning. Fortunately the snow on the road melted off by 9:00am
A very scenic drive through the mountains in mid western Texas country.

After a long 350 mile day, we arrived just before sunset at Picacho Peak State Park just north of Tucson Arizona. The next day the truck broke down and we were delayed a couple of days in Casa Grande waiting for repair. Thank God it did not happen in Big Bend, as I might still be down there waiting for a tow out.
