Wouldn't have believed you had such colours that far south . Great photos , Debi . Thanks for sharing .Will await your snow pictures .
Colors are essentially a function of temperature. And in that country (southern Arizona), temperature is significantly determined by altitude more than latitude.
I love the last photo! It would be beautiful printed on canvas and hung on my livingroom wall in a rustic frame!
Wherever I am, God is, and all is well.
Diane, you are more than welcome to do that. I could email you the larger format. I love taking pictures of old stumps and gnarly trees! :-)
Great photos. Thanks.
But if you were near the Mexican border, didn't you see the warning signs I've been reading about, to tell U.S. citizens about the danger of illegals being there?
Linda and I hike in Madera Canyon which is about equal distance from the border. The border patrol warning signs are there, but I have never seen an illegal immigrant on those trails because the Santa Rita Mountains are between the border and Madera Canyon. One would have to climb the rather steep mountains to get there. There are too many easier routes for the illegal immigrants to use the mountain trails.
In contrast, a dry river bed runs just to the west of Madera Canyon. The river bed has thousands of foot prints, hundreds of discarded back packs and lots of evidence of illegal activities. We don't go there any more.
