As always, the full comprehensive post of how we got here, what exactly we did and the best places to see – that will all be saved for the last post when I finally sit myself down to comprehensively write it all out in a way that makes sense. (right now i’m tempted to just snap a pic of the whole map, circle it and write in big red marker “visit all of it!”)

For now, have a look at the sights to see down on Old Maverick Road, as we made our way towards Santa Elena Canyon. The desert is colorful and sparkling bright so much so that my eyes watered and it had nothing to do with the incredible heat.

    Your photography is BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you so much for sharing!! I am so excited to read more- I also made a photo journal-type post about a small town in France if you’d ever like to visit!

      Thank you so much for the lovely words! They certainly brightened up an otherwise uneventful Wednesday (as I can’t always be traveling unfortunately) so thank you for that and yes! I will keep trying my best with my art and photography :)
