I used to think the desert was ugly, but it is actually a very beautiful place.  There’s much to see and wonder at any time of the year, but when the wildflowers bloom … WOW!  Enough said. Enjoy.

This beautiful little thing is called a seaside petunia (seaside???)/midget petunia and isn’t much bigger than a pencil eraser. It grows right at ground level.

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I am a full-time traveler, retired from a lifetime of different occupations, traveling the country with my two little dogs, Fries and Charlie B; The Chiweenie Brothers. You never know where you might find us, but if you do stop by and say hi . . . If you can get past the two best watch dogs in the universe! Happy Trails!

  1. After living in the “high mountain desert” for over 35 years I definitely see things differently. I too used to dislike the desert too but there truly is beauty everywhere. It is just so different that you have to look harder to see it. LOVE your pictures!!

  2. Thank you for the beautiful pictures. When working in the high desert area of Susanville, I found it to be especially beautiful in it’s own way during the spring . I think that with a positive attitude we can see beauty in most things, even most ugly. Charles Barkley is looking rather intently in that one picture. It is to be a lovely week of warm temps but maybe a sprinkle or two. Makes me want to get out and work in the yard…
    Have a great day.
