Jewel of the Creek

Nestled under the shadows of Cottonwood trees in the subdued pallet of Tonto National Forest's lanscape is the Jewel of the Creek. She gleams there, sapphire, a celestial blue wedged between mundane earthtones, a bit of heaven in which to dabble one's dusty toes.

Clouds Over Spur Cross

Clouds over Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area cast deep blue-violet shadows accentuating the contours of distant heights. The saguaro studded hills are what qualify this wilderness to be called a forest, the Tonto National Forest. Standing here on the trails of the Desert Foothills Land Trust in Cave Creek, it's easy to appreciate the beauty of this corner of the Sonoran Desert.
