Photoblogging: Beautiful Southern Arizona

I have been driving a lot lately, traveling to work with horses and people either at their homes or at various boarding facilities. Along the way, I get to see some of the gorgeous southern Arizona scenery. Of course, there’s the the beautiful desert – saguaro, prickly pear and ocotillo. But there are also mountains of all shapes and sizes, miles and miles of grasslands and, of course, those amazing blue skies. Every once in a while, I even take the time to stop and take a photo. Here are a few for you to share …
