Peering through a palo verde tree, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Winter afternoon—
so distant are the mountains
I cannot see them.

  2. A twisty, gnarled tree reaching for the blue skies above but begging for the rain to come to quench its thirst. Gorgeous SWF shot!

  5. Yet still… we journey forth… incredible photo that gives me the strength to step through and journey on…

  6. What a beautiful tree. What are those things hanging?

      The hanging things are seedpods. The palo verde is a leguminous tree, which produces edible (but tiny) “beans.”
