Desert Blooms 🌵🌺 📷 @pachucos_art
・・・
Good morning! 🏜🌵💮💮💮💮"Saguaro flowers are usually found near the tops of the stems and arms of the cactus. They are white in color about 3 inches (8cm) in diameter. They emit a strong smell, sort of like overripe melons.
During the night the flowers are pollinated by the lesser long-nosed bat and the Mexican long-tongued bat. During the daytime the flowers are pollinated by bees and birds such as the white-winged dove"  #azwildflowers #weroamarizona #deserttortoise  #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow
Even though most people think rattlesnakes are not out during the hot part of the day, I have found rattlesnakes roaming around in temperatures up to 105° so keep your eyes open! 🐍 "Due to the strong sun and hot days, rattlesnakes hide in the shade and cool places during the summer. They then come out towards dusk and will be most active during the night, crawling back into their shady places soon after sunrise. What this means for the hiker or camper is that before sundown and lasting til just after sunrise, a person needs to be careful about where you step – not always easy at night! Because of this, it is never a real good idea to head out on a hike during the night-time hours through rattlesnake country. While the odds are low that you’ll step on one, the possibilitiy DOES exist – and one you need to be aware of" #greaterroadrunner #weroamarizona #koldnews13 #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #azstateparks #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igers_tucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow
Do justice, pursue holiness ✨
•
I heard a message this weekend that included a part about how most Millennials (specifically Millennial Christians) are really concerned about justice but not so concerned about holiness. Boomers, generally speaking, are the opposite: less known for championing social justice + more concerned with “the rules” or values of their time. Maybe every later generation thinks that about the previous one + vice versa. Regardless, it got me thinking about where I stand + how I walk, how I do justice + pursue holiness, + if I truly make either effort.
•
It seems like justice is impossible to pursue given how much injustice exists. I feel so deeply + sometimes I worry that I’ll be emotionally wrecked if I lend myself to helping or caring too much. Endless causes to support + good fights to fight. I sometimes struggle to balance my left-leaning views with my faith + feel like maybe I’m doing it wrong. Where do I begin, + can I even put a dent in the mess?
•
Then there’s holiness — such a loaded, complex word. So often I wrongly link it to “piousness” + “religiousness”. I link it to “obedience”, another word that conjures up some amount of resistance in me, + I think of “pure”, which is immediately linked to one thing, which is a problem in itself, because you can be pure in that one way + still be far from pure in thought + in the other deeds you do. It all makes me wonder how to be both human + holy at the same time. Where do I begin, + can I even put a dent in my mess?
•
Maybe justice isn’t solely done when fighting for big causes or marching in the streets. Maybe it’s done daily, in the quiet corners of a classroom or in the conversations only a few people will hear. Maybe holiness is more about being steadfast in love + faith than it is about solely adhering to legalism + sets of rules we’ve put into practice long before we learned about our judgements + uncovered our truest motivations. I’m still learning how to be both just + holy + wholly human. We’re called to be both ✨

This flower just opened on a prickly pear cutting that I haven’t yet had time to plant. It’s literally laying on a table in my backyard in the sun. Nature is amazing!

Good morning! "These fast and fiery birds are members of the cuckoo family, a group of birds best known thanks to the common cuckoo that lays its eggs in the nests of other birds. The roadrunner, however, builds its own nests for rearing chicks." #greaterroadrunner #weroamarizona #koldnews13 #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #azstateparks #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igers_tucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow
Cacti are truly amazing to watch bud and bloom!  Who would have thought? (almost like a brussel sprout, right?) Plus did you know that these buds/blooms actually turn into a redish colored fruit? The birds are absolutely loving and feasting on the fruit right now. Stay tuned.

Outside yesterday with this little girl and I spied this beautiful hawk sizing her up. 
Birds of prey in AZ are a common sight, keep your pups close especially the smaller ones. 
Didn’t have the correct lens for the hawk shot but you get the picture!  Keep them close

Feeling so small standing at the top of this engineering marvel. •

The Hoover Dam is something you do not want to miss if you are in Las Vegas.  Take the time to leave The Strip and explore the area.  It is absolutely beautiful!  Make sure to also walk up and in the bridge to get a beautiful view of the Hoover Dam.  You will not get this view just driving over it…trust me.  They made it impossible to see by car going over the bridge.  It does get busy there so beware that the line to get into the area gets long.  Once parked you can walk the Hoover Dam. •

#divine_deserts From my history files, this is one of my favorite side roads found through exploring every single dirt driveway. If someone complained I’d say “I’m looking for Adele! She gave me directions.”
Last light on the butte!

I don’t usually share stories about my family on here, but the past few days I have been reflecting.  The day we went to the Hoover Dam we also stopped at In N Out, because my grandfather could not travel to the West Coast without trying some In N Out!

I took many trips with my Poppop from East Coast to West Coat and even to Europe once.  My family loves to travel and he was no different.  Right now things seem so unreal and I have yet to let things sink in.  Either way I will keep reflecting and thinking about all the good times. •

Hows your Monday going? 🦉 "If a Great Horned owl was the same size as a human, its eyes would be as big as oranges. When weather is bad the owls have great difficulty finding food, their soft feathers are not very waterproof and so they cannot hunt well in rain. Owls don't like rain because they have such a thick plumage and normally they avoid flying in heavy downpours." #greathornedowl #weroamarizona #koldnews13 #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #azstateparks #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igers_tucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow
