As an Oregon native, I don’t think anything is prettier than pine trees, creeks, and waterfalls, but unfortunately those beautiful landscapes usually require lots and lots of rain. I’m solar powered and totally need sunshine to function so it’s a good thing that I’m fascinated by the desert too. It’s funny that after living here almost 12 years, you will still find me taking pictures of cacti.
These are some iphone snapshots from a couple of weekends ago, some of these you may have already seen on Instagram (@lalafauxbois). We stayed at a resort outside Tucson to celebrate a friend’s birthday. One perk of our extreme summer heat is that all of the resorts offer crazy summer rates, making it a fun getaway for locals too, although they WILL get you back with the $14 cocktails…
You know what? Desert is probably the hardest word for me to spell. I can never remember if it’s desert or dessert (an embarrassing mistake to make!) and have to look it up almost every time. Drives me crazy. Is there a word like that that you can never get right??
Brian is a film photographer and has been collecting cameras since he was a kid. Between the two of us we always look like a couple of tourists- him with a couple of cameras around his neck and me with my phone and Canon :) He generally adds a new photo to his Flickr everyday if you feel like checking out his work or following along!This entry was posted in travel and tagged Arizona, brian, road trip, summer. ← recipe box: roasted beet salad flamingo friends… →
