I’d like to mention the editing for this shot, but as it was done a few months ago on my iPad, I don’t recall.  You’ll just have to enjoy it without further edification.  🙂

The Photo Challenge has moved into Wordless Wednesday’s spot and the Oddball Photo Challenge is back to (Silent) Sunday, so what’s left for Friday?  I have to go with Photo Friday, as I like the sound (but I refuse to use Foto Friday.)  So I’ll probably be sharing a photo on Fridays now. Even though I’ll let it speak for itself, I welcome comments.  🙂  Happy Friday.

On one of my last days in Arizona, my s-i-l and I hiked Wind Cave Trail, not far from Mesa in distance but, as you can see, not at all city.  It was the first really nice day in the nine I’d been there, so there were quite a few people on the steep, rocky trail.  That tan bit is one of the smoother parts of the trail.

We worked up quite a sweat walking up, but in the shelter of the “cave” (overhang), we quickly became chilly.  Emerging into the sun, we had a glorious view of the Phoenix area in the distance, the downtown area just to the left of the two little hills.  (If you click on the photo and then click again, you can see the buildings.)  The dotted line of white just above halfway is made up of the parked vehicles of the hikers.  There’s also quite a “forest” of saguaro cacti.  Although the view was great, we had to keep our eyes firmly on the trail, only looking while stopped.  You definitely don’t want to get off the trail and into the cacti without paying attention!

“Solitude”.  It’s not just for humans.
