I'll play...

I'm posting 4 pics; all are in the same region of the same country. I'm looking for the region and the country. Bonus points for either of the 2 cities pictured, or the 2 local sub-regions pictured. Photos taken in late-November & early-December...

Spain.  Andalusia?  I'm basing my guess on the white village in the 4th pic. 
WATER, It does a body good.

You nailed it Brian! :eusa_clap:

1st pic is Cordoba.
2nd pic are Los Frailes, viewed from La Isleta del Moro, Cabo de Gata (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabo_De_Gata)
3rd pic is Seville.
4th pic is the village of Capileira in the Alpujarras region (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpujarras)

You're up!

It looks a lot like Hwy 93 that leads NW out of Phoenix and ends up at I-40 near Kingman, AZ. 

Or... it could be Hwy 60 that leads ENE out of Phoenix passing the mining town of Globe, AZ.

I was hoping for the name of the canyon.  Hwy 60 passes through it about 40 miles North of Globe, AZ.

I can't recall the name of the canyon...  I drove Hwy 60 from Phoenix through Globe and Show Low on my way back home a few years ago.  Beautiful drive through a lot of different eco-zones.  Anything from desert to pine forests as we got closer to Show Low.

I'll pass to you.  It is Salt River Canyon.
