Photo: Theme Day "Facade;" A reflection of 119 degrees
The reflection has a double image because our windows are double paned to save cooling costs.
This photo is from two days ago, on Saturday, a day when the high temperature in Phoenix was 119 degrees (48.3 C). The sunset that evening was characteristically colorful as we often have in the desert, and we certainly welcomed the sun retiring for the day.
Our thoughts and prayers today are with the families of the 19 fire fighters who perished fighting a forest fire yesterday at Yarnell, just outside Prescott, Arizona, about an hour northwest of the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. The newspaper just yesterday carried an article saying that with global warming, we have had so many forest fires in Arizona that 25% of our forests have burned just in the last 10 years.
This week we have photos of a night at the opera in Paris posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
