I10 East in Arizona


I was out here pretty often when I was in grade school. My mom's family is from Arizona also. These are from Kevin Weed from March 2018.
This portion of I-10 covers the vast arid Sonoran Desert. While some folks may have a perception of a desert being a forever flat, dry, hot wasteland of nothingness, that's not necessarily true. While it is mostly flat and during the summer months does reach temps over 100, there are distant dry arid mountains amongst the desert and it does
come down to more tolerable temperatures during the winter months. The desert does get rain, the majority of which comes during the summer monsoon season, however it does rain occasionally during the rest of
the year as it began to do by the time we got into Tucson for this trip (but not often.)

This is by Exit 255 in Tucson or AZ77. It is the Miracle Mile.

Started to rain in this pic. At this point 10 east goes on to El Paso (and across the rest of the country to the east) and I-19 runs south to Nogales at the border of Mexico. Interesting thing about I-19, instead of mileage signs, I-19 gives the distance in kilometers (though speed limits are still in MPH.)
