I mentioned yesterday that I spent the weekend with a close friend at his cabin northwest of Phoenix. To get there one has to drive through about 70 miles of desert before climbing the mountain to the high desert location. The drive can be a bit boring during the hot summer months, but on this trip it was so beautiful that I found myself stopping along the way to take some photos. Those rainy days we had have worked their magic on the desert landscape. I pulled over to the side of the road for today’s photo so I could share with you the abundance of wildflowers lining the highway.
