Learn how to paint a sunset with a scene from Arizona. Arizona is the place to come for snowbirds, also known as people escaping the winter. I can see the reasons, you get to enjoy warm days, beautiful views with the saguaros and the lakes with the ducks. There are places in the middle of nowhere that you can take your RV and enjoy the seclusion. This is the view we had when we decided to give that a try. It was a splendid time but cut short with no electricity. For all those Arizona lovers out there, we are now among you, I hope you enjoy this lasting memory I captured here.
