Sum Glow Ranch - August 2012

Went back to Southeastern Arizona to enjoy the Lawrence Dunham Vineyards wine festival they put on every year. As usual it was a very pleasant experience and I learned a little more about the process of grape growing and wine making. We ended up staying at the Sun Glow Ranch given that last year we stayed here and truly fell in love with the place. The majority of the photos in this album were taken at the ranch and there are a couple of videos of the resident geese and horses.
