See What Sarah Sees: A Desert!
My husband and I were very lucky to take a mini-vacation this past weekend. Lucky because we had an awesome place to go to in Arizona and lucky because we had two sets of awesome grandparents to look after our kids!
I love Arizona. I love the dry air, the clear blue skies and the active lifestyle.
Here is the view we wake up to every morning ….
The desert is just starting to bloom and the colours stood bright against the muted backdrop of the mountains.
I was fascinated by the building structures. All the homes blend naturally into the landscape – low profile, muted colours that disappear into the desert sand and many are oriented in such a way that they protect the house from the blazing heat of the sun. Did you know Arizona has sun 360 out of 365 days a year?!
The hiking was fabulous. Didn’t see any wildlife but climbed some wicked hills, manged to avoid sliding into a cactus (which I have done before no joke) and got our butts in gear to shape up with Spring right around the corner!
Now we are back and refreshed! Well, mostly. When do we get to go back?
What did you see? Anyone see a desert last weekend?
