There's something magical happening behind those mountains. I can see it in the clouds. ;-)

That first photo, Wow, love the feathery clouds. Looks like a postcard or ad for AZ.
I'm hankering for a southern desert trip. And your images tease my gypsy soul.

I love the desert. Everything is so clear and sharp. Tucson is a favourite vacation destination for us, especially in football season. I invite you to come see my March snow shots from Powell Lake, BC. - Margy

Look at all that water. Awesome. Love the feathery clouds. It adds so much personality to one's outdoor experience.

It must be so beautiful up there this time of year. Its been nearly a year since I've been up there. I love that area way up in there where the stream comes up out of the huge gray and white striped boulders. Gotta love the hawks!
