"Place your hands in the soil to feel grounded. Wade in the water to feel emotionally healed. Fill your lungs with fresh air to feel mentally clear. Raise your face to the heat of the sun and connect to that power to feel your own immense power." -Victoria Erickson

Hiking: Deem Hills, Phoenix, AZ

My hiking buddy, Frank, and I hiked Deem Hills today.  It was 86 degrees and toasty warm.
I think this is called a corbelled arch.  
The hillsides are covered with an invasive grass called Buffelgrass.  
Dove. 
Lizard. 
2.6 miles.
