Construction of the new Ramada.

A walking view with Mts. Wrightson [L] & Hopkins [R] in the distance.

Mount Hopkins shrouded in low clouds.

Sunset Ramada continues the use of red tile and concrete wash over adobe block seen elsewhere throughout Esperanza Estates.

Arches are an architectural detail seen throughout Esperanza Estates.

An arched window and meandering adobe wall.

Some architectural & landscape forms combined with a Monsoon cloudy sky.

Arches in arches, with the gate in the foreground echoing the curvature of one in the background.  

Walls of varying heights create front and back courtyards of many different shapes and sizes.  

'This Space Available' -- for a bell, statue, sculpture, or ...  

Early morning interplay of colors, textures, shapes, distance and shadows.

Two 'natives', a Mesquite tree and Ocotillo, border the walk to the arched gate.

Palms & arches reflected in an arched window; a planter with annuals below.

Prickly Pear Cactus (Opuntia, or Paddle Cactus) in the foreground is a common culinary species.

Green Valley's 'big sky' shows endless combinations of sky, sun, and clouds.

...with every minute of each sunset being a little bit different.
