It was a beautiful spring morning and I decided to apply sunscreen, grab my camera, jump in the car, and head for the White Tank Mountains. It’s about a 25-minute drive straight west. They look so bare from home, but as you approach, you begin to see the color and growth. Sure, we’re in the Sonoran Desert, but it has its own beauty. I’ve been coming here for decades and have always been thrilled at the beauty and personality of the White Tanks. Next year I’ll come earlier for the wildflowers. They’re on their way out. Cactus blossoms are just beginning. Enjoy!
