Beauty Is All Around!!!!

Arizona has a way on growing on you. The longer that I am here, the more I have come to really like Arizona. 

Today, the PUPS and I took a drive to the community of Roosevelt to pick up a letter from our dear friend, Carolyn, at the U S Post Office. Carolyn had sent me some photos from our time in Patagonia. I took my camera so I could take some shots of road side flowers, cacti and the mountains...

The above wildflower was in the Post Office parking lot.

Coulter's Globe Mallow

The PUPS set out on a PATH to adventure!!

Pat, "Fairy Dusters" do grow wild in Arizona. 

Desert Lupine was everywhere along the side of the road.

Carolyn sent the package to me in care of General Delivery at the Roosevelt Post Office. While there, I was fortunate to meet a very friendly and beautiful lady, Kim. I left the Post Office and took the PUPS for a walk on a nearby lakeside road where I had seen some great cacti. While the PUPS were exploring and having a great time I took the above photos. 

At ten minutes to five I decided to return to the Post Office and ask Kim if I could take a photo or two of her. She graciously agreed...


What a smile!! 

The PUPS and I headed back to the "Bus" just in time to catch the beauty of the sunset...

A raven flies into view as I take the sunset shot.

Truly, beauty is all around. Who would have thought that one would find such beauty at the Post Office?!?!
