Arizona

I had a wonderful visit over dinner with thecaelum last night in Scottsdale. We ate at a restaurant called Carlsbad Tavern--New Mexico style cuisine and a bat motif--recommended by skripka. The Caelum is a witty and wonderfully cynical person, and we passed a very agreeable couple of hours discussing Lex and Smallville and DC comics.


There's no line quite as sharp as the one formed by these mountains against the sky:

And there's no more iconic flora anywhere:



This place is incredibly beautiful.

Wow! That looks like a fabulous place!

I'm beginning to wish I'd allowed myself an extra day here to see something like that.

Oh well. Next time. And your pictures convey a lot. Thanks!

:: sigh :: It does look beautiful. And the greenery looks mighty obstreperous. :)

Yup. This is not friendly greenery.

Apparently they've had record rainfalls here this year ("What global warming?" --GWBush) so the desert is unusually green. It's enchanting--and all the moreso when you realize how fleeting it is.
