Yucca and Saguaro
I am not sure that snow and mountains completely substitute for flowers in the desert. I love the flowers that bloom here along the Wasatch Front, but I have a special affinity for the desert and its flowers. The scenery here in Provo is certainly a lot more dramatic than the more subtle beauty of the Arizona-Sonora Desert but the desert is still a large part of my soul. I guess I live in three worlds; the low deserts of Arizona, the sandstone of the Colorado Plateau and the high mountains of Northern Utah. Each of these has had a special place in my life of walking in Arizona and Utah.
