A couple of weeks ago, over the period of a couple of days, I found thirty geocaches. (It’s not really as spectacular as it might sound – my all-time record in one day is 84, found in New Mexico at a power trail event near Albuquerque while visiting my friend, Linda.) But I thought maybe seeing what the desert around Quartzsite, Arizona, looks like this time of year, after an unseasonable warmer couple of months than normal, would be of interest to you. And since I took a few photos while I was on my geocaching mission, here they are: kind of like a blog’s idea of the vacation photos we all bring back from Disneyland or the cruise we went on.
It’s fairly green around here because of the rain we had a few weeks ago, and the rain from the clouds visible in the pics will make it even greener in the weeks to come. One doesn’t typically associate the word “green” with miles and miles of kitty litter but I can tell you, it’s green. Ish. If one were to just drive a couple miles out of town, up on a rise, and take a look around, it’s so green, it’s hard to see the tan colored sand in between the green trees and bushes that grow out here.
Enjoy the pics… and maybe next time, you’ll come with me to snag a few caches out in the desert!
See you on the road!
