Arizona– God’s country

Questing for desert flowers- wild cactuses and succulents.

I began my trip in Tucson and made my way to Green Valley. I went through Sahuarita and then came to Dragoon and Cochise. There are many beautiful and unique fields of cactus patches within The Sonoran Desert. The Sonoran Desert offers tremendous views of desert landscapes and vegetation.

There are many desert cactus varieties to see at Tucson Mountain Park, The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and Saguaro National Park. I took the scenic route through Tucson Cactus Forest Drive and was in desert heaven!

I can’t help but love the rugged beauty and sweet desertscapes of the Old West! My wanderlust adventures just keep coming true!

  1. The rugged beauty of the desert always captures me.
    What wonderful adventures you relay! 🌷😌
    How long do you plan to travel for? And do you have a very rigid itinerary…. or are you letting the winds of destiny carry you?

    1. I do try to keep to an itinerary, but I often end up having many wonderful and unplanned detours along the way. I find so much beauty on my journeys by braving places off of the beaten path. My sense of wonder is the driving force that keeps me wanting to explore.

  2. I think a lot of people forget about the beauty in the desert…it’s definitely not a barren wasteland! Beautiful pictures, I love your outfit! Thanks for sharing!
