Wickenburg desert photos — 24 Comments

  1. Your comment about staying in Phoenix made me laugh. Years ago, John and I took a southwestern vacation. We flew into Albuquerque, rented a car, and drove west. We had all sorts of great stops planned…..rafting on the Rio Grande, riding horses down into a canyon with old cave dwellings, mountain biking, Bryce/Zion parks…you get the picture. We went in June and were warned it was peak tourist season and would be crowded. Everywhere we went, it was pretty much empty, just a handful of people (except maybe the Nat’l parks and even they weren’t packed). We could drive and not see a car ahead or behind for long stretches at a time. (Tourist season in DC is the “crowded” I expected with traffic jams and lines of people 100 deep. Crowded is in the eye of the beholder I guess. LOL) At any rate, it was extremely peaceful and secluded to us. However, our last stop to catch the airplane home was a couple of days in Las Vegas. And that is where all the people were! After more than a week of blissful quiet and solitude, the hoardes of Las Vegas were so overwhelming we couldn’t wait to get the hell out! LOL!

    • That must have been a great trip. Zions and Bryce can be crowded, I think anyway. But it’s super easy to get away from people. Just walk 500 yards off the road. LOL Crowded to me anymore is more than ohhhhhh, 3 people. Kidding! I am not a fan of cities and I really hate Phoenix after I lived here years ago. Give me quite and I’m a happy person.

  2. Your sunset photos inspire me! I’ve been taking some in my area (none as stunning as yours) and got a nice one last night. Of course, sunrise is totally different, I generally am too busy to enjoy those, but I did manage to snap a photo one morning, not too late. :-)
