So, whenever I drive between San Diego, California and Scottsdale, Arizona, I have to pass over a mountain range that is just East of San Diego. Yes, the same one I took the sunrise pictures from the top of on my way to Arizona at the beginning of this trip.
On the way home, I stopped at the bottom of the mountain range to take these pictures… over on the desert side.
You really do have to love seeing cacti blooming, it is a rare event.
Once again, yellow flowers dominated the scene.
See, I actually got out of the car and walked into the desert, just to get some photos to share with you.
Because I care.
And I needed to stretch my legs.
Coming up next, a beautiful mountain meadow on the other side of these mountains, and some very happy cows.
