Bridget Encounters Cacti, Boulders and Sunsets

I couldn't leave Tucson without a visit to Saguaro National Park. There were beautiful blue skies on the day of my visit. 
I love the Saguaro Cactus. To me, it's the first thing I think of when someone says cactus. This one is especially pretty with snow in the background. 
I like to think of this one as the three amigos. Try to separate them and they get prickly in a hurry. 
I love this one, warts and all. 

And then it was time to move again. Traveling east from Tucson there is an area called Texas Canyon. You're driving along through the desert minding your own business and suddenly there are giant boulders strewn all over the landscape. It's pretty amazing. Of course, I had to get a picture of Bridget and the boulders. 
New Mexico here we come! 

Near Las Cruces, New Mexico at a rest area, there is a giant roadrunner sculpture made entirely of garbage. There are ironing boards, shoes, and even auto parts in the sculpture. 

We only spent one night in New Mexico. Truthfully only because I wanted to put the sticker on my map. My rule is I have to spend at least one night in a state to add the sticker to my map.

And then there was Texas. El Paso is on the border of New Mexico and Texas. It's a good stopping point and I needed to get my mail shipped to me and have an order shipped from Amazon so I got a site for a few nights. 

The first night I was there we had the most incredible sunset. 

More texas adventures next post!

  1. Lots to see in New Mexico but you would want warmer temps so later in the spring or early fall. Glad to hear you are still enjoying yourself.
