P is for pondering…


Today’s post is different – I’m not going to talk about a particular hiking trail, or some of the animals/plants one can find here in the Sonoran Desert.  Instead I’m pondering…because as I hike around here, I often wonder what the people who traveled through Arizona (usually on their way to California) thought when they encountered our desert.  Were they surprised?  Scared?  Awed?  Bewildered?  Did they think they had stumbled into another world?

I honestly can’t remember which hike I was on when I took this shot…


This shot was from the Vista Trail before sunset – there was a lot of hazy clouds that day.  Lighting was horrible!


Along the Levee Trail…


Another shot from Cat’s Peak Trail…

As you look at these photos, dear reader, what are your thoughts?  What do you think of the Sonoran Desert?  Pondering minds want to know!  🙂
