Ocotillo, Saguaro National Park
Night blooming cactus, blooms a couple of times a year
Storm clouds over the Santa Rita Mountains, the view from my backyard and kitchen
Sunrise over the Santa Ritas, view from my backyard
Saguaro Cactus, Saguaro National Park, but also found everywhere in Southern AZ

Living in southern Arizona took my breath away - the vastness of the sky, the beauty of the desert, the wild life, the rising and setting sun, the mountains - were simply beautiful. I made some good friends there too. And, I found a silent retreat center that I will return too one day, with a profound sense of peace, prayer, and beauty.
