Photos tell the stories in the best way
This post could also have been called, Photo dump. I have taken so many photos of great things the last few days, I just wanted to weave them into a single post somehow.
Starting with the gorgeous sunrise the other day. Sunrise colors are just so vibrant and inviting. I suppose they are inviting in the day. The clouds that morning were perfect.
Then that evening, the colors of the sky were golden. The ocotillo cactus are just so close to blooming. I wish they would hurry up.
Thursday, we needed to go into town and get water. And pizza. Some of the best pizza we’ve ever had. There is another section of the KOFA we have never seen, but have wanted to. We drove to an area called crystal hill on our way to town. To imply that it’s on the way, is not entirely accurate. Let’s just say, the dirt road turn off is on the way. 5 miles down the dirt road is crystal hill. So named for the naturally occurring crystals there. We wandered, looked for crystals, and saw some cool stuff. Al found me 2 heart rocks, and I found one decent sized crystal, and a small one.
There were a lot of these fish hook cactus around. I think they’re so cute. Imagine growing in these rocks? The rock layers at crystal hill were very interesting too.
We saw a windmill that was pumping water into a cement trough for the animals. I read that there are several in the KOFA, and the bighorn sheep, deer, and other animals have greatly benefited from them.
The sunset on Friday was another great one. Roxy is having back issues again, so Torrey and I went for our evening wander in the desert. She is so beautiful in the sunset glow.
When the sun went down further, the show really began.
The sunset photo below is this weeks special photo deal.
The colors that the sky produces, still amaze me.
Saturday we went to a great place, that will get it’s own post tomorrow. I have to go through 250 photos first, if that tells you anything.
Happy Monday friends!
