I am back in San Diego after visiting my daughter in Scottsdale, Arizona. I took a lot of pictures on the way home. Yes, I take pictures while I am driving. But I am a professional, trained driver, and I don’t look through the view finder. I just point, and click, and let auto-focus do the rest. I don’t take my other hand off the wheel, or my eyes off the road.
That is right near where Jessica lives. It is a rock formation called ‘Camel Rock’. It is supposed to look like a camel sleeping in the sand. Maybe it does. I also happened to catch those two Saguaro cacti by the freeway, propped up with two-by-fours.
Okay, I guess it looks like a sleepy camel… sort of…
I leave it up to you.
So get ready for it. I have a lot of photos. The American Southwest is a unique place.
I mean, most places have mountains and forests. A lot of places have beaches. Yes, there are deserts out there, but each one is different.
Also, I am a sucker for mountains fading away into the distant mist or haze.
And you do get a feel for how big this country is.
Also, because of a snow storm in the pass, I had to take a different way home, so a lot of this is stuff you might not have seen before.
I hope you enjoy the journey.
