The family hiking in White Tanks recreational area. We hiked the Waterfall Trail. It had just rained so it was great to see so much water in that area.
Isn't this awesome scenery? I love the saguaros and chollas!
Arran stopping to smell the flowers.
Dove nesting in a saguaro.
I love this sign. I've been fascinated with flowers for the longest time. I love that they're only here for a little while, then they produce seeds to create the next generation of plants and flowers. Maybe my next post will be on the wildflowers of this area...or my latest trip to the Needles where we saw all kinds of flowers and very cool rock formations.
Desert spiny lizard. I followed it until it stopped long enough for me to take a picture.
So I know it's only 8 pictures of two very different, scenery and plant-filled trips but I didn't want to go on too long. As soon as I download pictures from the Needles I'll post that trip as well. I've got some half-days coming up at work too so maybe I'll get out into the Island in the Sky area more and have something to say about that!
