ngus Mountain has a sugary coating this sunny December (15th) day. This shot was taken at the entrance/exit to the community where I live. The Christmas season is in full swing here, with luncheons and parties and musical offerings and Santa appearances. ImageOne recent event that had less to do with Christmas and more to do with celebrating Arizona’s history was the annual Clarkdale Tour of Historic Homes. I’m saving much of that story for an article I’ll be submitting to The Beacher, but let’s just say that it was waaay different from any midwestern home tours I had taken. Arizona celebrates Clarkdale tour of homes bannerits 100th anniversary of statehood in 2012, so there are plenty of upcoming events to anticipate.
