Tucson (Arizona) – In Another Minute (Week 284)

the second largest city in Arizona, is nestled in-between several
mountain ranges in the Sonoran Desert. It may also have become my
favorite quick getaway from Colorado – not only because my inspiring
Brooklyn friend (and acupuncturist) Jess Grotfeldt
lives there now and it’s only a 90-minute flight from Denver, but also
because it’s so sunny and surrounded by amazing and diverse nature and
other sights.

When I visited Jess this past week, we explored all
around the outskirts of the city – even more than the city itself. So in
this video, I’m including desert and cacti images from the Saguaro
National Park
and views of Tucson from Mount Lemmon and Catalina Highway
in the Catalina Mountain Range. Please consider those images as a
teaser for upcoming videos dedicated to those places since I already
shot a lot more in those magnificent locations. But there’s also enough
of actual Tucson proper for you to get a taste, including the University of Arizona (what’s with all the no weapons signs everywhere, including “no nun-chucks“?), the West University neighborhood and the Hotel Congress, where John Dillinger provoked the end of his criminal career when getting too involved with some firemen…

most special experience of my time in Tucson was watching the Blood
Moon, or Supermoon Lunar Eclipse, with Jess on her roof. What a
transitional experience. I included a brief shot of the Blood Moon in
this video, but you can watch the entire eclipse here: Blood Moon (Supermoon Lunar Eclipse) – In Another Minute (Week 283).

like to express a huge THANK YOU to Jess for being such an amazing
host, wonderful friend and excellent filming partner in and around
Tucson and on a road trip to the Sonoita-Elgin Wine Country, Bisbee and
Tubac… more videos to come… Can’t wait to share the time-lapse
desert sunset…
