Beginning of the Trail
This is essentially in my "backyard." We live about two blocks from the mouth of the canyon shown in the distance. This is nearly on top of one of the hills right behind our house. There is a vast difference between what I can see out my window right now and what I have looked at for the past 40 plus years in the desert. It is a nice change. But every so often, I get a deep longing for the desert. There is something about the solitude and clarity of the desert that are deep in my bones. But then I look out at the green wall of forest next to my window and decide that the green is a fair tradeoff.
