On The Road Again: Trip to Town, Part Deux
I'm not sure why Picasa did not include these last three photos. I am not used to using it extremely well, but I have also noticed that Blogger is tempermental, at times. So...here we finally go to finish that trip over to the other side of town, towards our small mall.There is a BIG difference between the micro-climates on our side of the mountains, to the eastern regions of Flagstaff. We are actually about 7+ miles from our actual town proper. And we travel about 7+ miles to get over to the other side of town, but the climates are so totally different. While we get more snow and rain, the other side of town is much drier and windier. People I know who live on the east side of town always mention that while they have a longer growing season for their gardens, the have to water like crazy to keep the wind from drying out plants. Plus they have more prairie dogs on their side of town while we have gophers and ground squirrels.
