"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit,
and as vital to our lives as water and good bread."
~Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
Sometimes you just need to be warm...and brown.
Listening to the wind through the Junipers.
The hummingbirds singing to you from the top of tree snags.
A chance converstation at a hotel desk led us to a fabulous hike.
Climbing deep into canyons following stream beds of *water*
we encountered beautiful desert waterfalls.
Saguaro, favorite haunts, and watching a bride arrive to
her ceremony in a helicoptor.
