Patagonia Landscape

On my visit to Arizona this month we drove down to Patagonia. It's a small town about 25 miles north of the border; a really cool new age type place where the people are laid back and the weather is normally mild and breezy. The town's 5,500 ft elevation keeps the climate fairly cool in the hot summer months and in the winter the temperatures average around 60 degrees. On the day we arrived the overnight lows hovered near 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Pipes were freezing and plumbers were raking in the dollars. The next day was warmer and we drove into the Santa Rita mountain range and found a place to stop and paint. The terrain in the area is unique and beautiful.
