Fascinating Desert

My favorite activity, while driving to our cabin is to use the sport setting on my camera and photograph the desert –
especially the saguaros and the skies, two of my favorite scenes.

Ice in the Backyard

 

This pine tree is actually in our backyard in Gilbert, Arizona and grows very well in the desert.
Ice formed after the sprinkler system, which comes on at 5 a.m.

This past week brought freezing temperatures in the 20’s and created ice
that lasted 2 days wherever water happened to be standing or flowing.


When I stood still instead of trying to skate on our icy pond, Spice stood still and I clicked a picture.
(she hates posing for pictures as much as she hates the cold)

Even after the frozen nights, I have enjoyed delicious, juicy grapefruits from our citrus.
What could be more magical than icicles hanging on a pine tree, ice on the pond
and a juicy grapefruit – all in the same place?! ūüėČ

January Snow in the Valley of the Sun

 

Snow in the Valley of the Sun РPhoenix area Рis a rarity. A few weeks ago snow gently floated  from the skies in many parts of the Valley, giving brief moments of delight to school children, but melted so quickly that it was gone in the blink of an eye.
The Four Peaks Mountains reigned in all their snowy beauty for several days.

Arizona Highway Alt 89A

Travel east of Jacob’s Lake is an adventure in breathtaking Arizona scenes
in a seemingly ancient landscape of painted colors.

Arizona in April

JUST AN HOUR AND A HALF OF TRAVEL

From the desert to the mountains
From cactus and wildflowers to snow and icy waters
From 85 degrees dropping to 55 degrees

Amazing Arizona Desert

When I was a child I thought the desert was hot and ugly until I saw a movie called, “The Living Desert.”¬† My eyes were opened to the amazing creatures and plants of the untamed wilderness. As I grew older, my heart opened to the beauties of these creations and I now hear the songs of the desert singing joyfully in praises to our Lord and King.
