Cactus Country ▌Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona


I lived in the desert, in Tucson, from June 2001 through June 2003. I hated it. Sure, I found that I loved riding my road bike through the foothills very early in the morning. I found a handful of restaurants that were incredibly reliable. The monsoons had me mesmerized with lighting that permeated my dreams. But overall, I had the opinion that it was a hot, dry, brown, boring landscape. If only I had looked closer. I wouldn't have wasted 7 years believing that I hated the place. I'm so glad I returned. I feel so fortunate to have this second chance and the wisdom to slow down, look closer, and thank God for the beauty that can be found in everything.
