Tuesday morning we had to go to Prescott, so we got up early and left about 5:30 a.m. The sky outside was filled with storm clouds. Across the canyon, it was raining and lightening.
Out in the meadows 12 miles away, we saw a herd of buffalo standing in the road.They took their time crossing to the other side.
The sky still looked stormy, and the ground was wet, but we never got into the rain.
There was a huge rainbow, so big I had to take two pictures to get all of it. I have never seen a rainbow quite like that one before.
Further down the road,out in the desert, we passed by the Vermillion Cliffs
We passed by the area burned in the Shultz fire in June in the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff. That fire was caused by a careless camper leaving a campfire burning.
Our trip took us down I-17 south of Flagstaff and through the Verde Valley.
We had slow going due to road construction along the way.
We finally made it to Prescott. We spent the night there, then went back up to Flagstaff for a couple of nights. This sunset in Prescott was fabulous!
