Another catch up post, seems to be the thing around here now. LOL.
We arrived in Arizona mid December, and immediately got rained on for a whole day. Which was actually wonderful to see, since it hadn’t rained here for over 100 days. I have never seen the desert looking so dry and brown as it is this year. So sad to see.
Our first camp spot was a place we had spent quite a bit of time in the spring, and photographed the wild burros. This time they were not as easy to find, or photograph. Maybe the drought has them in different areas. But, what we did find was adorable.
We decided to stick around this part of Nevada for a little longer. We do like it here and being close to the Valley of Fire is so nice. Al has been Plein Air Painting, and we have made sure to explore some new areas. But, the best part about staying was hitting the desert bighorn sheep ram jackpot the other day.
We left Utah the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and headed south. 20 at night, is just too cold. Plus, we had everything done we needed to do as far as art stuff. This was the first time we hit the road without Roxy. She did love the desert, and she is watching and traveling along I’m sure.
We don’t have any art shows in Arizona until January, so we have time to explore. We like to stay at Lake Mead not too far from Valley of Fire every time we pass this way. Something different this trip was wild burros were we boondock. We sometimes see them in the general area, but never right were we camp.
