a world within a world….

North and east of Lake Pleasant and just inside of the Agua Fria National Monument, trespassing again, in a near marsh-like drainage from the surround of desert hills, I found this unexpected microcosm thriving after the year’s abundance of winter and spring rains….

    These are such wonderful photos – ones down inside the plant life, amongst the rocks and insects and ground critters. Very nice!

  2. Given a little extra water, the plant life in the desert is amazing in its diversity!

  4. An unexpected microcosm indeed. Seems the desert likes to show off when it finds some moisture! Beautiful, Scott!

    • And it does a good job of showing off, too, Gunta!

  5. A beautiful, hopeful image, Scott…the colors are so full of life. It all looks very moist – more than some places I’ve been seeing lately! We’re having a drought, but there’s enough residual moisture so far, it’s not disastrous. 😉

    • It was very moist, Lynn…actually a bit soggy as I went further up the draw. Hopefully you’ll get more water soon…although I’m not real familiar with your weather patterns up there, other than to know that your southern neighbors in Oregon get their share of winter storms…. I’m glad it’s not disastrous. 🙂

        I thought we weren’t supposed to say ‘moist’????

        • I went against my natural inclination, followed the lead of the original comment, and took a chance….
