Scheurman Mnt Trail 5331a


Scheurman Mnt Trail 5331a, originally uploaded by dustinjblodgett.

Just a 40-minute drive from Flagstaff is a town called Sedona. Since it is almost 3,000 feet lower than Flagstaff, the environment is very different as you can see from this photo. It is a high desert landscape with drought-resistant, succulent plants with a gorgeous red sandstone background. On the right is the ubiquitous prickly pear cactus; on the left is a fibrous yucca plant; and just peaking around the corner in the upper left side is a juniper tree.

This photo was taken at the top of Scheurman Mountain on Scheurman Mountain Trail.

This is an amazing photo! You really caputured the beauty... so great to be able to 'enjoy' Arizona through your lens. Texas is nice but, it's never going to be Arizona.

Thank you, Missy, for your very kind comments. One of the reasons that I take photos is that other can enjoy them, not just me. :-)
