“A Walk in the Desert” Excerpts from a Photo Shoot

I go from the deep woods and snow of the Pacific Northwest to the deserts of Arizona. As an avid hiker, I was spoiled by the hiking opportunities offered in the Seattle area. There are trails everywhere and the scenery is stunning. Having just moved into a new home that we had built in the Phoenix area, it is requiring a complete shift in my hiking expectations. In the area where we live, there are a number of hiking trails into the desert. The following two pictures are from my first venture out last week. Believe it or not, these shots are from a trail just down the street…..

The Sierra Estrella mountain range is located southwest of Phoenix. There are a number of 4000 ft peaks, which can get snow.

A wash in the desert

This is a typical wash that does see water flowing during the monsoon season in the summer. I took a series of shots that day…cactus will come later….
