D is for...

Dragoon Mountains. While hiking last Sunday we had excellent views of the Dragoon Mountains east of us. I see these mountains every day on my way to and from work, although the view of them is blocked from our house. Often in the early mornings they are purple colored in the still-not-quite-dawn light. In the late afternoons the shadows and sunlight on the western facade are deep and dramatic. Often the valley will be in shadow while the face of the mountains are in bright sunlight.

The old west town of Tombstone has an amazing view of these mountains, especially from the old "Boot Hill" cemetary. Sometime I will go over there and get a picture which I will certainly share.

The Apache chief Cochise had one of his strongholds (camps) in the Dragoon mountains. It is said that he is buried in an unknown spot up there. There are many spots in southeast Arizona where it seems that time stands still; this is certainly one of them.

These photos, and the flower pics, are an excellent tonic. Thanks for brightening my middle of the night.

Beautiful shots! We will live in such a flat area that it's so nice to see the mountains.

I grew up in desert. I love living in gentle, verdant mildness now, but those shots of desert distances and stark, sharp mountains give me such a sense of peace and comfort. Thank you.
