We took a trip to the Paolo Soleri Bridge for the 2018 Summer Solstice. It was a beautiful 104-degree day in the Valley of the Sun. A perfect day to observe the longest day of the year in the desert southwest.

There was nobody at the site when we arrived however as soon as noon rolled around a couple families showed up to partake in the event. What amazed me is there were no locals here, only tourists. (Shame on you Phoenicians) The shadows moved slowly as we waited for solar noon, but it eventually rolled around as we were there to witness it.
