Sacred places

Bringing my hiking observations to the drawing board. Prehistoric expression in daily life. Those who came before us. Enjoy.

Part of Flagstaff's historical past.

Abandoned and rusted. Its amazing what you find in the forest. This exhausted vehicle sits today near a historic trash heap complete with rusted cans that once contained condensed milk. What was happening here in the 1920s? I’ve interpreted this image into an oil painting using digital brushes. Adds to the vintage feeling. Photo opportunity while hiking. Enjoy.

Diamonds beneath my feet.

Large galleries of rock art images are wonderful but I still take pleasure in the isolated pictures, a singular statement by one author. Makes you wonder what it is all about. Its also male Tarantula migration time in our high deserts. Photo opportunities while walking around.

Tenacious life in an eroded environment...

Limestone escarpments in Yellowjacket Canyon. Anyone know the name of this plant species? Adaptation to a high desert. The luxury of the monsoon season of a few weeks ago is gone as winter arrives.

Looks like a form of frost bite.

Prickly Pear Cactus in November… Winter colors, surviving freezing temperatures and snow to arise again in Spring with brilliant blossoms. Adaptation to a high desert.

A place of great devotion... Limestone Canyon in northern Arizona

This completely carved limestone bench from prehistory was a big surprise when I saw it. My first spiral petroglyph with a “head.” Snake or comet, or what? And all of those sharpening grooves. A luxurious rock art site filled with images. Photo opportunity during my hike.

Diamonds Beneath my Feet

After two days of rain I went on a gentle walk along the upper environment of Padre Canyon. Everything was still wet. Patient observations in the small details. Photo opportunities during hike.
