Gates Pass Area In The Tucson Mountains   1 comment

Tucson Mountains Panorama 3-blogGates Pass Area In The Tucson Mountains — Panorama by kenne (This panorama was created by merging three photos in Adobe Lightroom)

The road through the pass
is narrow with lots of curves
and no shoulders for the
many bikers going along the
crest of the Tucson Mountains.

Sunsets in the Sonoran Desert
at beautiful, especially when
viewed from Gates Pass after
spending the day at Old Tucson
or Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

For good or bad . . .

the things that remain
to remind us of what we were
before we were without that
which prompts us to remember”

Girl Atop Windy Point Vista Pinnacle Rock   Leave a comment

Girl Atop Windy Point Vista Pinnacle Rock (August 20, 2010) — Image by kenne

out on a mountain highway

two months after moving to

the desert southwest, with

everything new to my eyes

I didn’t have to look hard

for photo opportunities —

pictures were for the taking.

a popular stop on catalina highway

is windy point vista,

6,000 feet over the Tucson basin —

the views are gorgeous.

adding to the view

on this day was

an attractive woman atop a

rock climbing pinnacle.

hot desert summers,

I was too new to the vista,

too old to climb with her.

I never got her name —

with a body like her’s

who needs a name.
