More White Mountains

photographyHere are pictures from last weekend’s getaway to the White Mountains in eastern Arizona where we aimed for water, mountains, and open spaces for camping. At 9,000 feet, the Elk were everywhere. Herds cross the road, and at night, their bugling is a treat. Mountain Goats and Bears are shy but will come out if you are quiet. What I love about camping are the night skies devoid of light pollution. During the full moon, the meadows illuminate herds walking by. If you live in a desert climate, rivers and lakes never sounded lovelier.  The whispers and rustle of the Pines and Aspen trees are a tonic that fill my head with a fragrance that calms me down.

  1. Even though I live in the ‘countryside’, I have to go a long way not to be able to see another house, farm building, or something else spoiling the view. Your photos show that the US is big enough to make this possible in so many places, so for that reason, I like them all.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I vote for number 3. It expresses the vastness of the country and is such a contrast with the lowlands of Arizona. I’ve only been through Flagstaff to the north west and that was such a delight.

  3. my fave is the second to bottom one, though they are all amazing Cindy. I need to get out more with my camera, though I doubt I’ll get pictures as pretty as yours! I’d have to travel pretty far to find scenery like that

  4. The rustling trees and dabbling streams do seem like they would be “tonics” to a desert dweller or a city person, too. I liked the birch trees set against the green underbrush and the rippling rocks photos, Cindy! 🙂
    Your title of “White and Green” “Liquid Rocks” both fit these.

    1. Hi Robin. Thank you! The first and last were more artful and the others were perspective shots of where I hiked. Capturing time, at this precise moment, here I was. 🙂
