"They Say It's..."

"Where the Desert Breeze...Meets the Mountain Air."

...And that spot would be Yarnell, Arizona!
(If you have time click on the link...its a hoot!)
The area is studded with
"mammoth granite boulders
throughout verdant growth of Oak, Hackberry, and Chaparral,
as if strewn in casual disarray
by a giant and artistic hand."
I just love that part of the line. :)

Yarnell is where I spent my day yesterday...
with sketchbook in hand.

Thank you, each and every one,
for the lovely comments left for me while I was out celebrating! :)
I read them when we got back home from our adventure
as the sun was setting on a wonderful day.
They warmed my heart.

"If I could reach up and hold a star
for every time you've made me smile,
the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand."

Gorgeous! Makes me want to transport myself (beam me up, scotty) and meditate right there under the violet hued shade of those rocks.
