Mescal Mountain is a flat top mesa about 500 feet tall located west of Sedona, AZ, from Dry Creek Road/Long Canyon Rd. Bear and I hiked there this morning. The trail hugged the mountain’s side and the open views and big sky were breathtaking.
What I appreciate about Arizona northern desert are the textures. I tried to capture some of them.
The junipers, cacti, the angles, the curves, the bristly, the spiky, the soft and that blue, blue sky….
I can’t catch the space. You can spread your arms wide and the space never ends. I like that.
The next bend moves into another one.
Bear and I could have walked all day, but after a few miles we turned back. This trail was not crowded and mountain bikers passed me more than hikers. A perfect way for me to spend a Saturday morning!
