Lovely shots, as always. Of course now I wish even more that I'd been able to work things out to come for a couple of days in September. I miss the skies the most by far--and then next probably the forests of cacti, which I took for granted all my life. I never realized how many people have never even seen one in person, let alone thousands. When I think about how old saguaros are, and how long they've thrived in such harsh conditions, it blows my mind--and gives me a profound sense of hope.

I know what you mean about the cactus. I've lived here long enough to take them for granted, which has both a happy and sad dimension. But the thrill that those not familiar with these parts have in seeing them periodically reminds me of how special this place really is, despite its obvious problems.
