Wickenburg desert photos — 24 Comments

  1. Wow the skies could not be more different. The firsts ones with the light coming through are wonderful. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Phoenix is just another city, nothing special. Those photos are gorgeous. I bet you will get some great ones in the Sedona, Prescott area. It is so beautiful there.

  3. 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.

  4. Thanks for sharing the great pictures! We’ve seen some lovely sun rises over the last few weeks – but the sun is always coming up over snowbanks, so it’s nice to see some flowers and ground instead :-)

  5. 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. :-)

  6. Gorgeous photos, Mary! I hope your time in Phoenix goes well and then you can be on to your next beautiful place….I enjoy your photos so much!

  7. Gorgeous photographs. Love the colours and contrasts.

    Thanks for sharing them!


  8. I was wondering where you guys were right now. I went to the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show today and they had a RV on display. I thought of you guys and thought man, I could SO live in one of these and hike around the country :)
