Driving back to phoenix tonight. I decided to drive from Winslow to Phoenix through Payson. The canyon from Payson to Phoenix is beautiful. My expectations where pretty high. The anxiety that is a constant in my life was increasing as I watched the sun drop in the west. I really wanted to stop at a few favorites spots and get that “late day” shot. I was losing the race with the sun. My luck took control. A beautiful hawk was hunting along the roadside. He would sit atop the cactus for a few minutes then move down the road and land. He did this several times. What a beauty!!!!!!!
