Any excuse for a road trip:  I moved to Oklahoma for a better job, and I stopped at some scenic places enroute.

Almost as soon as I crossed from California into Arizona I started seeing saguaro cactus.

I didn’t know that Kofa National Wildlife Refuge had such dramatic landscapes.  I arrived there at sunset, camped out, and then woke at dawn for the “golden hour.”

I didn’t see much in the way of birds or wildlife, but my love of saguaros kept me busy for the few hours I was there.

There are bighorn sheep in them thar hills.  And now some saguaro portraits.
