Sun seekers

 

 
If the desert is holy, it is because it is a forgotten place that allows us to remember the sacred. Perhaps that is why every pilgrimage to the desert is a pilgrimage to the self. There is no place to hide and so we are found.
~Terry Tempest Williams
Waking up to this view of the Superstitions was a relief.
Especially due to the fact that we set up our tent in THE SNOW the night before.
You wouldn't know it.
My very first Roadrunner

new cities keep on sprawling Old towns falling too Raining a river of color

and it's flowing bisbee blue 

straight to you bisbee blue

some say this way's the only one that's true

bring me back bisbee blue

Bisbee sits high (5,300 ft.) in the heart of the Mule Mountains.

  1. You've found the heart of the holy. After all that soul-filling adventure, I'm surprised you found your way back to Wyoming!

    1. Ha! It was slow going...and I wanted to get lost (or at least take one more detour) on our way back to the frigid tundra. :)

  4. I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are having a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your linked header on our new site directory, SiteHoundSniffs.com? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the linked header will attract more attention.

    1. Hello.
      I'd rather you not, but thanks anyway!

  5. That's a very special place. I think you are right about the 5300 ft. being a good elevation. Not too hot, not too cold...on average. Oh the irony of you setting up in the snow! You must have brought it with you;-)
    You struck gold in the critter department. Love the burros:-) Stunning roadrunner. Great shot of the Cactus Wren on the cholla. Very cool!
    I have my own ocotillo. One of my faves. Such delicate, thorny beauty. I bet you have your own someday as well!
    We are thinking maybe Payson someday if we do ever leave the Mojave. Its right about 5,000 feet, an hour away from the big city and less than an hour up to the high country above the Mogollon Rim where elk and black bear roam.
    I love Arizona:-)
    I hope you find your special place!
