Posts Tagged With: desert hike



Yesterday was a travel day, from Apache Junction to Kingman, Arizona. We stopped at a pull over and saw Joshua Trees and stepped in to take a picture. 

Off a short distance was a rock outcropping. We decided to hike to it and see what was on the other side.

Then we spotted a bunch of barrel cactus.

This one is pink tinged . They are quite beautiful in their own environment. Soon, one led to another.

And another..

There were some black smaller barrels and several other types of cactus.

A path beckoned us forward.

We climbed some rocks and carefully watched for snakes.

I found a beautiful patch of lichen.

And a chance spot for a hike.  Living on the road allows you to stop and smell the flowers, or in this case, enjoy a desert vista.
