This is the old church from the posting last week. The chair caught my attention, but I photographed it because I liked the red roof, white building and blue window. I wonder why the chair was left there, out in the sun like that.

We rode quads in the desert around Havasu on Saturday, and I came across this old truck stuck in the wash. It was probably abandoned in the wash (stolen and set on fire?), and when the wash flooded, the sand that came with the water buried it up to the axle. Just a theory.

I spent the three-day weekend in Lake Havasu City, which is why I haven't been able to post until now. On Saturday night, we watched Winter Blast, the Western Pyrotechnic Association's fireworks extravaganza. Here's a shot of the finale.

I heard that this old Catholic Church was mostly attended by the Mexican laborers who worked the local farms in Queen Creek. I haven't been able to confirm that. Obviously, it hasn't been used for quite some time, and I'm afraid it won't be too long before it is torn down.

I spent yesterday in Sedona for an assignment, and I finally got up the nerve to do the helicopter ride. Although I've always wanted to fly in a helicopter, I managed to talk myself out of it. Yesterday, I finally went through with it...and I'm glad I did!

I snapped this photo about a week and a half ago, the afternoon the big storm moved in. I had decided to pick up my daughter at the bus stop because the wind was blowing so hard and happened the have my camera with me. I didn't realize it, but a tornado watch had just gone into effect for Queen Creek. We didn't actually get one, but two touched down in North Phoenix, around Cave Creek.
