Sorry it had to rain on the parade, but it is certainly needed out there. Identifying the flowers....the yellow ones are tough and a closeup would have been helpful. They might be some kind of mustard. The white/pink one look like Oenothera caespitosa, the stemless evening primrose aka the tufted evening primrose. They start out white and age to pink.The cactus with the flat pads is some kind of opuntia (prickly pear) and the "green snakes" plant is an aloe.

Our happy traveler has arrived in New Mexico through the rain. Below you will find several pictures in AZ and NM. We need some help with identifying the cactus and vegetation of that area. Now we can observe the changes from sand and only cactus to the native grasses and perennials along the way.

As expected: I have to say it. Where is the Lone Ranger?    Name the wild flowers.


Bridge in AZ around Safford.

Through the good earth.

Native grasses.

One Way Home.

Spring has sprung in AZ.

Look at the grasses and the succulents mixing.

Lordsburgh New Mexico.  Now onward to the East.  We are with you in spirit.
