Red Rock Canyon Panorama blogRed Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Panorama by kenne

The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is an easy 15-mile drive west of Las Vegas, Nevada. Located in the Mojave Desert with a beautiful desert landscape, but as a resident of the Sonoran Desert, I find the Mojave Desert very harsh.  Like most deserts, the higher elevations are much more diverse in plant and animal life. This image was taken near the Visitors Center. A one-way paved loop road, 13 miles long, provides vehicle access to many of the features in the area and to more challenging primitive roads.

Is The Monsoon Season On Its Way?   Leave a comment

Cloud-line Panorama blog-.jpgHaze and Cloud-line, More Humidity In the Air — Panorama by kenne

I was up on Mt. Lemmon today, where they are not allowing any outdoor fires at campsites because the Santa Catalina Mountains are so very dry. Even though it was a hazy day, I took the panorama with the haze and cloud-line showing how moisture is beginning to move into southern Arizona. Hopefully, we will start to see some rain by mid-June.

Sabino Canyon Esperero Trail   1 comment

Sabino Canyon Esperero Trail Panorama blogSabino Canyon Esperero Trail — Panorama by kenne

I walked the trail
passing clouds
cast their shadows
of dark gray
on the mountains.
All morning I pondered
the thought of a poem
I may never write
of this moment
missing the words
like the spring wildflowers
that never bloomed,
the land is bare
birds having migrated
south to Mexico.

Forgotten The Way By Which I Came   1 comment

Hutch's PoolSabino Creek Near Hutch’s Pool — Panorama by kenne

I wanted a good place to settle:
Cold Mountain would be safe.
Light wind in a hidden pine —
Listen close — the sound gets better.
Under it a gray-haired man
Mumbles along reading Huang and Lao.
For ten years I haven’t gone back home
I’ve even forgotten the way by which I came.

Sunset Panorama- blogCloudy Sunset at Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico (February 13, 2018) — Panorama Image by kenne

peaceful waters of the air
under echo’s branches

peaceful waters of a pool
under a bough laden with stars

peaceful waters of your mouth
under a forest of kisses

Beach at Rocky Point blogThe beach along the northern edge of the Sea of Cortez (February 12, 2018) — Panorama by kenne

The sun has dissolved
behind the clouds 
as the wind 
stirs up the sand
and chills the spirit.

We have just arrived
yet it seems
like time to go.
There will be time
tomorrow to watch
morning come,
listening to the
song of sunrise.
