Desert Fun

Since it's Friday, I'll keep this post simple. I want to show you a few more photos from our desert trip.

This was K's rock on our second night camping there. The moon was still almost full - so not many stars were visible over the 2 hours and 15 minutes that my camera took star trail photos. But, I love how the moon made K's rock glow and also made the sky a deep blue rather than black. The streaks of clouds add to the surreal feeling.
I'll also share a photo taken at sunset near K's Rock. This one truly shows what an alien landscape the red rock desert is. The light at sunset in the desert is incredible!
 And Shyla waved bye-bye to the sun as it set on the distant horizon. What a happy dog she is!
Happy Friday!

  8. Not only is Shyla beautiful, those red rocks are simply awesome!! I really, really want to go visit Sedona someday!

  15. You capture the beauty of the desert so perfectly. I can see why you feel such a connection to it, both in its beauty and its memories past and present.
