The Sun Sets On This Job

Here is the Plant I worked at. It was a pretty nice place in the middle of nowhere;



It is in the Harquahala Valley just outside Phoenix, AZ surrounded by mountains. It is the driest place I have ever been. Still it has a raw rugged beauty. Wish I more room to post more pics but I liked these.





This is Saddleback Mountain, Not to be confused with Brokeback mountain.



I took a lot of pictures of cacti. Aint that how you spell it? I was surprised that most of them looked pretty rough. They seem to like growing on hillsides. This one seemed a bit shy.



And so the Sun Sets on this job with bittersweet feelings.
