Sunset on the Superstition Mountains, May 7, 2016

Clear air on a partly cloudy afternoon gave us good hopes, but of course you never know until you get there. Beatrix and I had tried taking pictures from this spot once before but arrived too late. The light was better this time. We were just east of Broadway Trailhead, by Jacob’s Crosscut Trail.
