Reminiscing a Bit More

While I'm still on break, I've been working on a photo project. So, in looking through a bunch of my old photos, I found a few cool ones from Arizona and New Mexico I thought I'd share.

I'm at the Saguaro National Park in Tucson, circa late summer 2000. I would've gotten a little closer to a saguaro, if I hadn't been worried about an encounter with a rattlesnake off the main trail.

Do you see the javelina right in the middle? I saw it at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, circa late summer 2000. Can you believe how close it is?

This was a storm rolling in, as seen from our back yard in Alamogordo, NM, circa early spring 2007. Lots of thunder and lightning, but not as much rain as I'd expected.


And this one of White Sands outside of Alamogordo - yes, I've posted this one before, but I'm posting it again today in honor of New Mexico's 100th birthday!

I love the storms in the southwest--midwest storms don't compare. The white sands look amazing. I have never been there but would love to see it.
