Sky Islands are isolated mountain ranges in southeastern Arizona and northern Mexico,
connecting two very different mountainous regions.
Sky Islands are places where you can see incredible plant diversity in only a few miles.

A sonoran spring
A joy to experience
On its many trails.

Hike from the valleys
Through many biome changes
To the mountains high.

Many sky islands
Each having its own cycle
For propagation.

Islands in the sky
High above the desert floor
Share the monsoon rains.

My mountains,

Santa Catalina, one

of the Sonoran Desert’s

sky islands, presenting 

a life zone tour

of desert,

grasslands,

oat woodlands,

and pine forest

where climate diversity

is equal to a drive

from Mexico to Canada,

with panorama views

of surrounding Sky Islands —

where less becomes more.
