In search of contrast
Photographing side by side —
Juxtaposition.

Earth, plants, and the sky
Photo placed proximity —
Matchup and unmatch.

Hiking The La Milagrosa / Agua Caliente Canyon Loop — Panoramas   Leave a comment

Hiking the La Milagrosa / Agua Caliente Canyon Loop is a popular hike offered by the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN). The 6.5-mile loop takes the hiker up the ridgelines and down into two canyons located on the eastern edge of the Santa Catalina Mountains. We usually hike the loop clockwise, taking the Milarosa trail first looping back through the Agua Caliente Canyon, but this morning (December 9, 2016) we reversed the loop hike thereby providing a different perspective for those of us who usually hike the loop clockwise. 

The vistas from the ridges provide hikers beautiful panoramas of Tucson, the Catalina Foothills and the Santa Catalina Mountains through which the lower segment of the Catalina Highway can be seen. Since this was a beautiful clear morning, I decided to take the time to take photos that could be merged into panoramas in Photoshop. ENJOY!

be sure to pay attention to the path.

Forgotten Dreams In An Abandoned Ranch House   2 comments

Milagrosa Loop (1 of 1)-9 art blogForgotten Dreams In An Abandoned Ranch House — Computer Art By kenne

Forgotten Dreams

Every trail has a past.
Hundreds of hikers have
walked its rocky path
sharing stories laced
with embellished truths,
myths and legends.

Combining several trails
that loop through
the La Milagrosa and
Agua Caliente Canyons,
we began our hike
walking down Horsehead Road

through a gated community
before taking a rocky 4WD road
to the La Milagrosa Ridge trail
passing by an abandoned ranch house —
light now shines through its roof,
giving exit to forgotten dreams.

This giant saguaro cactus is easily over 100 years old. Located on the steep Milagrosa canyon wall, which may have served to protect it over the years.
