Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Our World-Where the desert breeze meets the mountain air

01 Weaver Mts & Yarnell Hill Rd from SR89 Congress AZ (1024x764) (1024x764)
Yarnell lies only four miles uphill from the desert where temperatures drop about ten degrees.

Such a beautiful part of the country and your captures are terrific! I do love the skies/view in your last shot! Hope you have a great week, Gaelyn!

It's amazing the temperature differences with elevation. Miss that here in Oklahoma.

You live with one foot in the mountains and the other in the desert (while I think maybe your heart remains at the Canyon).

Lovely views and scenery, Gaelyn! I love the last shot!

It's January but I can still feel the summer heat from the lower elevations dissipate as the road climb higher and higher.

Gaelyn, it is like that on Mt. Lemmon in Tucson. You start out in the Sonoran desert and end up in ponderosa Pine forest! only that drive up is about 25 miles I think. in the summer it can be 20 to 30 degrees cooler up there and in the winter it snows!

I'm back from holiday and catching up. I missed my favorite blogs and you are right at the top.

Its always amazing how the environment can change by crossing a mountain or climbing in elevation.

Such vast scenery you have over there, so different to where I live in the Yorkshire dales - and you would think our roads are teeny-tiny compared to those you travel!! :-)

Reminds me of some of the scenery I saw last May in California...saw no accidents though!

Beautiful views from up there. A ten degree drop at this time of year might be pretty chilly.
