Morning on Parson’s Trail…in Sycamore Canyon

After walking down into the canyon and then out of the shadows of the high walls, the sun begins to ease onto the trail as a silent, yet very present companion.

After we walk down into the canyon and then out of the shadows of its high walls, the sun begins to ease onto the trail as a silent, yet very present companion. ย While she becomes a source of exhaustion in the miles to come, she is welcome in this hour as she reveals the canyon’s treasures and warms our fingertips.

    I think your photos and writings are equally sensational. Keep it up, forever. I am an 87 year old retired atty. I have hiked the Colorado plateau and the wasatch mountains.  The Sonoran desert–Tucson-Ajo–are dear to me. For years I have tried to learn and engage in photography. Do you teach any workshops? I would like to tag along on some of your  hikes, but age now somewhat limits my physical activities. Are you Scott Seekatz?  Do you have a studio or office in Phoenix?I am blown away by what to me is an enviable life.Best to you.James P.

    • Thank you, James….seems that we may have trod some of the same trails in our separate lives. And no, I don’t teach any workshops for photography….I am only slightly above a “beginner” with a camera….and the desert and mountains are my studio, and this blog is my office. Thank you for visiting, sir…..and wishing you well.

  4. I suppose all that green has to be treasured out there in the desert. It looks very lush and inviting.

    • Yes, Gunta…it is to be treasured….and is, by me, anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Lovely path, and so true, the way the sun’s warmth is invited in at some points in time, but despised at others.

    May 25, 2015 at 2:28 pm

    • Yes, Lynn….so true. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. I would imagine that it must get close to unbearable in the sun at around noon.

    May 26, 2015 at 2:11 pm

    • It was getting a bit warm, for sure….but I haven’t experienced it yet in the middle of the year when it’s likely to be ugly, not on this trail, anyway.

  9. What a wonderful place to be on any morning!

    June 1, 2015 at 10:19 pm

    • Agreed…..ANY morning!
