This past weekend Hubby and I set out to our northern property in Young, Arizona. One of the things we enjoy most about our weekend get-aways is the drive there. We're all about "enjoying the journey" and this is a drive we'll never get tired of. I thought I'd share a few of the pictures (413 in total) I took this weekend.
The desert is really green this time of year with all the rain we've had lately. You can see Roosevelt Lake in the background below the mountain ridge.
Climbing the mountain...these narrow roads are a little scary at times with blind curves and no pavement.
The next few shots were taken during our Saturday afternoon hike. You really have to watch where you're going, even in the high desert. This cactus blends in with the terrain, and was among the trees where we were walking. I took this shot at eye-level. Yikes. Being stuck by a cactus is NO fun!
If there's a random water hole, Hubby will find it. Here we looked for animal tracks and antlers. We found lots of critter tracks, no antlers. (temperature in the high 60's and I'm wearing 3 layers!)
We had a nice relaxing weekend, and the only thing that made it easier to come home is knowing we're going back with our camping group in a couple of weeks.

PS: The office where I work is closed this week so I have a whole week off to catch up on blogs (and other stuff I need to do this week that are non-craft related). Wishing each of you a fabulous week!!!
