While Mike has been visiting the last month we drove up and down the Yarnell Hill a lot, or so it seems.
It’s a great drive 2500 feet up a very curvy road. But please use caution, this road sees a lot of accidents.
Within four miles the environment changes from Sonoran desert to oak woodland.
Just over the western edge of the Weaver Mountains grows saguaro and ocotillo.

From bottom to top the temperature changes at least 10 degrees.
Which keeps me living in the mountain air.
