This picture was made on Thanksgiving day in Marana, Arizona, just North of Tucson Arizona. This picture represents Arizona with the iconic Saguaro cactus in the background with another iconic Arizona icon, a pool; it is full of AZ sunset color to tie it all together.

After walking through wash for 30 minutes and finding nothing worthy of an " Arizona Highways " submission I was giving up and heading back home. But as soon as I started my sad walk back I noticed a rabbit cautiously wander across my walking path and into a rusty pipe ( no sharp pieces from what i saw inside ) and then poke his head out through the other side. Seeing this as my chance I sneak up to the pipe entrance, set my settings and take a couple of photos of him inside the pipe. He stayed there for me and let me get all the photos I wanted. Now as i submit this photo, not the one originally intended for submission as my files got corrupted, I realize how nice he was to stay there for me.
