Hiking Through the Desert

Yay for hiking through the desert!  lol.  It was a lot of fun and I wish we could have stayed longer.  So it wasn’t actually “hiking through the desert” like you’d think in movies with dunes of sand.  There actually wasn’t any sand at all.  We were in Tucson, Arizona.  It was strangely breathtakingly beautiful.  🙂

The sun was in the perfect spot that day.  When I was little, I wanted to be a professional photographer, but after getting a little older and realizing that that wasn’t really a practical career path, I settle for just enjoying the little moments I get to be artsy and take in the view :).

There was so much cacti!  And they were so big!!  I had always thought cacti that big was rare and was only really seen in the movies.  They were everywhere!  It was amazing.

Yeah, so I really wanted to touch a cactus needle, lol.  … it really was just like a sewing needle… smooth and long, but really really sharp on the end :P.  Fun stuff.  Also, apparently it only rains in Arizona a couple of weeks out of the year.  It looked like rain on the last day we were there.  I’m not sure whether to be flattered or bummed with our bad luck X_x, lol.
