What an amazing sunset last evening. I ran up the Mcdowell Mts to Wingate Pass so I could enjoy some once in decade snowfall here in the valley of the sun.. I went from a dry desert to mountain snow to rain then sunny skies. It was very cool as its usually sunny 90% of the time, so any kind of weather out here is always welcomed and fun to be in.. . #exploringaz #azsunset #sunset #mcdowellmountains #3tvphoenix #azrunning #devine_desert #igsouthwest #12newsaz #trailrunning #trailrunner #hikeaz #sunsetsoftheworld #skyporn #sunset_love #sunsetporn #arizona_hiking #arizonasky #desertsouthwest #az_desert #arizonahighways #arizonatrails #arizonagorgeous #azinstagram #arizonabeautiful #oh_arizona #see_arizona #grandcanyonstate #natural_arizona #oh_arizona

Some say the desert is in ugly unattractive brown but we see differently. The desert is starting to bloom. Hints of tiny white flowers that dust the desert floor everywhere. These little guys are called the Desert Star and I can see why. Like the heavens above on a clear night, there are millions of these. Always trying to be careful to not step on vegetation in the desert, it’s hard because they are so tiny and hard to see. But everyone of them is perfect. They are no bigger than a dime. . . . . . . . . . #rvlife #boondocking #boondockinglife #desert #desertlife #whiteflowers #desertflower #americangirlmine #desertsouthwest #desertbloom #flowerstagram #desertstar #desertbeauty

Murals make any city a public art gallery. And like all art museums each one has their own unique works.

We awoke to record snowfall in the desert city of Phoenix, Az. today. I was able to journey into some higher terrain to find some wonderful winter scenes. And as the sun rises again I the morning, all should be back to normal. The winter storm that blanketed the desert is heading to the east coast. #winter2019 #snowstorm2019 #snowstorm #saguaro #desertsouthwest #arizona #azhighwaysphotoscapes #azhighways #fstopgear #delkindevices #datacolor #datacolor #canoncps #canonpro #myrrs

The snow storm of 2019 appears to be over. Blue skies and slow moving clouds look great over Granite Mountain. Looking forward to getting out before all the snow melts.

Looking back along the ridge of Angel’s Landing last weekend in the snow... while I have you, what are your thoughts on people who play their music on speakers while hiking? @andrew_moreland_photo and I passed 3 or 4 groups of people who were doing this on the way up (fortunately the snow scared them off before they reached the top). I feel this is so inconsiderate of fellow hikers and goes against everything I love about the outdoors. If I want to hear something it’s the rain hitting the ground, the leaves rustling in the wind, the birds in the trees. What do you think? @zionnps

Fun Fact Friday! (Extra points if you can spot the little critter resting on the branch!) This is the Desert Ironwood Tree (Olneya tesota). It produces pink and purple flowers as well as seeds, both of which are edible for humans and other animals! 🌸🌸 The ironwood name comes from the heavy, dense heart wood the tree produces. Did you know the wood from these trees are one of the heaviest in the world, and therefore doesn't float in water like other wood? These trees are essential to our desert southwest, and are a beauty to spot in person! The tree is this picture is from our Executive Director's own backyard 🌳 . . . #tree #trees #treesmatteraz #treesmatter #funfactfriday #treefacts #ironwoodtree #deserttree #desertsouthwest #edibletrees #urbanfoodforest #foodforest #localnonprofit #phxaz #az
