She took the pictures here two days ago while on an outing with her uncles, aunts and cousins. This landlocked state is not really a tourist destination for those who are looking for beaches and resorts. Vegetation is sparse and scrubby mesquite and cacti dot the landscape.
I like this picture of the group as their shadows are cast on the rock by the setting sun. They had spent the afternoon exploring a cave, climbing a steep mountain slope, and walking across the large open spaces. The sky was spectacular as the sun set in the early evening. The nights are very cool at this time of year with temperatures less than 10C in the early morning hours and the daytime values are in the low 20s. Perhaps this is best time of year to explore the desert and enjoy its stark beauty.

What a spectacular sunset. Wonderful colours.ReplyDelete
The reason for it being very cold at night and very warm at day is because Mexico is closer to the equator than us.ReplyDelete
The last shot is amazing... makes me feel comforted, as if a visual depiction of God watching over us.ReplyDelete

How beautiful the sunset is, and the blue desert sky, but the shadows against the rock wall are by far most beautiful; a most amazing picture!!!ReplyDelete
Ah, the west. My inexhorable drive to head toward the setting sun cannot be extinguished.ReplyDelete
