Just another day on Pusch Ridge

I know I know... so many look at the Pusch Ridge - west of Oro Valley, Arizona - and the ridge always looks the same. Maybe on the "dog days of summer", the sky is clear, the temp is well... high - but it is a dry heat - and the ridge looks like it did yesterday. But those days are seldom, so look at the ridge every day, don't take it for granted.
