Photographing Mount Lemmon

Tradition normally dictates we would road trip to Colorado in September for our anniversary but after traveling every month since May, we crossed traveling off of our itinerary for September. Sometimes you just need some down time. So for our anniversary celebrations, we kept things low key but made sure to do something we love…

…Adventuring in the outdoors!

We drove to the very top of Mount Lemmon to dine in the cute Iron Door restaurant then went location spotting for a fantastic view to watch the sunset.

Monsoon season brought out a plethora of wildflowers late in the year, probably more than when we went wildflower searching in the spring!
