After the rains on Thursday, we took a road trip to Surprise, AZ to pick up a few things at Trader Joe’s. We take the old route 60 rather than I-10, which is very scenic and offers better gas mileage for our Prius. I always love when we get the part of the trip where we start to see the layer of mountains in the distance. Normally, it is clear blue skies. These monsoon clouds added an extra layer to the landscape .
