Tucson Mountains Saguaro Cacti

I went for a January pre winter  storm (in Tucson read: rainstorm) hike in the Tucson Mountains. Cactus spines and arms stood out in front of the approaching clouds.

Bowen Stone House in Tucson Mountain Park

In the 1930’s, Sherry and Ruby Bowen homesteaded a section of the Sonoran Desert in what is now the Tucson Mountain Park. Stone walls and fire places are all that remain of their ranch house. Empty windows look out to saguaro cacti and mesquite trees on the hills around these ruins along the Yetman Trail.

Mountains and Beaches in Northern Mexico

I recently photographed a series of sunrises and mountain ranges between Sonoyta and Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. Here are two of my favorite panoramas from the area.

Structures in the Sonoran Desert

Abandoned and decaying structures fascinate me. These types of buildings are scattered across the landscape along the road from Sonoyta to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. While driving through the area a few weeks ago, I stopped to photograph a few of these structures.
