Way Station

The shadow of an ironwood tree offers relief from the heat in Yuma County, Arizona.

Desert way station—
I rest in a shady place
before moving on.

    Shade makes an excellent way station. My pampered corgi certainly thinks so, and often takes a moment (or 10) to rest under a shady tree during his regular walks.

  13. It looks like the only shady place in miles… enjoy the rest before you move on and wear a hat!
