C is for Chihuahua Desert

Poppies in bloom near Deming, New Mexico
March 2012
Since 2006 we've lived in the Chihuahua Desert, which extends from the Mexican state of Chihuahua into west Texas, New Mexico, and eastern Arizona. No one photo captures a typical scene, but the photo on the right suggests both its harshness and its beauty. It's a far cry from New England, where I lived most of my life.

Since you've stopped by, please leave me a note in the comments section. I'll make a point of returning the favor.

I always find the desert a fascinating landscape to consider. Do you prefer living out there, or do you miss the very different climate of New England?

I love the landscape of the southwest. It's like a whole different world from anything in the eastern half of the country.

Beautiful picture, I'd imagine it is quite different to what you are used to, I'd imagine that it also offers some great images for photographing.

I would imagine you get some pretty hot weather in the summer months!

We'll get triple digit temps in the summer, commonly in June.
