COLOR IN THE DESERT

Here are some photos from a recent walk in the high desert on the Colorado Plateau. There is so much color out there, it is very impressive! The wildflowers are (clockwise): Tidytip, Potts Prickly Pear, Globemallow, and Phlox.  

AMAZING RED ROCKS

In the Sedona area of northern Arizona, the layer of red rocks are a sandstone that was deposited about 300 million years ago, in the Permian Period. You can learn more about it here: A RED ROCK AREA. I took these photos in the Village of Oak Creek area, the views are truly vivid and breathtaking.
