Once you get out of the desert in Phoenix Arizona starts to look like any other forested area. It reminded me of the Canadian Shield. This was the first sign of snow we saw and as I continued further North snow was seen on the ground next to the road. The forests and mountains were really nice and very vibrant despite it being winter.
I was on my way home from work one day and I happened to look over behind me and saw this view. The rain in the distance looked cool and it was an interesting perspective to see rain from. You can see the way the wind moves the path of the rain as it falls from the sky and where it is heavier.
