Arizona desert

me and cactus

100 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, sound like a perfect day to walk around the desert right?  That’s what we ended up doing yesterday.  A desert museum actually, with all the native plants that would normally be there.  Anyone who thinks there’s nothing cool to look at in a desert should just look at my photos from the day.

Loads of wild flowers.

Flowering cacti too.


Stopped at a pass in the mountains on the way to Tucson for dinner, a sweeping view over the whole desert/mountain landscape and loads of tall cacti. Then watched the sunset on the drive back…



It’s Monday now, and I’ll be back in Iowa this weekend. Scary thought.

  1. Hello Adam, We’ve just started to look at your blog, with interest, since we’ve met your parents – in England many years ago. You are fortunate, blessed of the Lord, to have such dear parents. We note that you spent time in California – sorry we didn’t get to meet you when you were in L.A. Your photos of the Arizona desert are fantastic! Our granddaughter lives near Phoenix with her family – yes, we are great-grandparents. Glad you made it safely around the world on your adventure. Our son Ken would have been interested to hear about it. He loved to spend time hiking in the High Sierra Mountains of California.

    Jesus taught us to pray a most meaningful, powerful prayer; which we sincerely pray for you:

    “Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom Come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Matthew 6:9-13
