Re: A Springtime Walk in the Desert

Great color and variety! Thanks...I'm going to have to get to the desert in spring, sometime. I visited the Sonora desert in December, and recognize some of these from seeing them without their brilliant display (click HERE for that blog) This is certainly a reminder of how little we know a place when we only know it "in season."

How many times do folks say "Why did you go there ? There's nothing to see !" That's why I love going the opposite way from the crowd. Beautiful selection of photo's ! Any little beasties on the loose ?

Thanks! Greece is a lovely country - and very varied. The islands are great, but there is plenty to see on the mainland, too. We have enjoyed touring the Peloponnese and Meteora in the North. Ikaria, however, is our favourite part of the country.

A Springtime Walk in the Desert

DrFumblefinger ·
