One of the first road trips my husband and I made together was to Mt. Lemmon near Tucson, Arizona. There were lots of great trails to hike, and great trees to photograph. It was before I had an appreciation for just how awesome clouds were in photos, but luckily I took advantage of them when I had the chance.
