It wasn't my original plan, but I ended up spending most of July and August in Gilbert, Arizona around my parents' house. I had planned to buy a car in 1-2 weeks and then get going, but the car I bought needed a bunch of work (cf. motor mounts, a new carpet because of a horrible smell the old one had, which the dealer managed to hide from me.) Sigh.
I don't hate the area I'm from, but being there when it's 110º outside everyday was not… ideal. Still it was nice to be able to hang out with my family for a lot of time. I really haven't seen them more than a couple weeks at time, and during the busy Christmas season for a few years, so getting to hang for a month was really nice. I also had time to take some shots of their house.
And of the surrounding area.
