“Located near the top of Cleopatra Hill between Prescott and Flagstaff is the historic copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona. Once known as the wickedest town in the west, Jerome was born a copper mining camp, growing from a settlement of tents into a roaring mining community.

After its founding in 1876, Jerome was at one time the fourth largest city in Arizona with the population peaking at around 15,000 in the 1920’s. The Great Depression slowed the mining operation and the claim eventually went to Phelps Dodge, who still holds the claim to this day. World War II greatly increased the demand for copper, but after the war demand decreased dramatically. With Jerome’s economy completely dependent upon the demand for copper, Phelps Dodge Mine closed in 1953. The remaining population of around 50 to 100 people promoted the town as a historic ghost town. In 1967 Jerome was designated a National Historic District by the federal government.

Today Jerome is a thriving tourist and artist hub with a population of around 450 people. Jerome resides above what was once the largest copper mine in Arizona which was producing an astonishing 3 million pounds of copper per month. Men and women from all over the world made their way to Arizona to find work and perhaps a new way of life. Today the mines may be silent, but Jerome has found new life as the largest ghost town in America.” -azjerome.com

Decided to go for a short walk after dinner tonight. Just go around the corner and this view awaits you. Gosh, I love these mountains. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Side note - bear with me a bit. There probably won't be too many aviation pictures until closer to Oshkosh. I do plan to visit a museum near by, but I've got to find my way into the community down here. However, there will be lots of pictures of mountains and big, open skies! 🏜⛰🌄✈

What do you think of the natural desert? Water from below.. In and around the San Andreas Fault - Thousand Palms, CA - May '19
Once within 100 meters or so of an oasis you can pick up the sound of the breeze moving through the palm trees. That reminds me of pine forests. There are multiple Oases here at this reserve, the town name of Thousand Palms is spot on. .

It’s kinda funny, when I started getting back into photography I had no interest in doing any type of nature landscape photos (trees🌲,bushes🌳,rocks🗻...boring😒) portraits of people in a action giving an emotion is what I really enjoyed.😎 Today tho, I think I may be changing my mind a bit lol😅. The Coachella Valley (where I live) we have some of the best sunsets that you ever did see, pair that with our beautiful Mnt. San Jacinto🏔👌🏽😉...pure bliss. I haven’t done much studying on this area of photography,so I think it’s time to get subscribed to some of the🥇 of this art form an start learning.👩🏻‍🏫👨🏻‍🏫There is always something to learn and get better at, the moment you stop and think you have it down pat and u reached the top...📉 we ain’t about that life instead 📈🌄🏞🌅 Whats your favorite kind of photography? What would you wanna try? Doesn’t hurt to try 🙌🏽😉 #alwaysgrowing #desertmountains #cochellavalley #desertlandscaping #amaturephotography  #canonrebelt7

Back to some desert landscape shots from my trip to Arizona last month. Here is a photo of a Saguaro cactus against the desert landscape on a buddies property near Yucca, Arizona. #sonya7 #sonycamera  #sonyphotogallery #sonyphotography #sonyalpha #sonyalpha7 #arizona #grandcanyonstate #visitaz #visitarizona #rbpphotographyusa #blackrapid #blackrapidstrap #LiveTheMoment #arizona🌵 #yucca #yuccaarizona #mojave #mojavecounty #arizonadesert #highdesert #landscapephotography  #cactus #highdesert #desertmountains #landscape_lovers #landscapecaptures #landscapestyles_gf #saguaro #saguarocactus

After a 3 day, cross-country drive, we are finally in New Mexico. It was a long, but beautiful 3 days. I already feel distant from my "old life," but this is my home now. I will never forget the memories made in Illinois, but there are new adventures ahead. As tired as I am, I can already feel my soul re-energizing from the mountain air. It's time to take a deep breath and start anew.

These mountains were once a massive coral reef system that stretched halfway to what is now Mexico. The shallow sea that submerged them eventually dried up, then some tectonic event pushed them a mile into the sky, where they now live an afterlife as rugged desert mountains. Near the top, the ground is crystal. Quartz almost everywhere you step. And in the valley below, life is thriving, tucked away from a sparse and desolate desert landscape just around the bend. Welcome to Texas.

Lomatium shevockii, the Owen’s Peak mountain parsley. This rare species (CNPS 1B.3) is only found on and around Owen’s Peak in Kern County. Luckily there’s some to be seen growing right along the Pacific Crest Trail, but I also climbed up Owen’s Peak to as a side trip to see what else grew up there! It was a hell of a steep and long bushwhack the way I went up but I eventually made it to the top. I didn’t see any Lomatium shevockii up there, but there were some other neat plants like Orochaenactis and a Diplacus and an Erythranthe. Next time I make it up there I’ll spend a lot more time hunting around, but it was super cool to go off trail for a bit! #lomatiumshevockii #lomatium #owenspeak #apiaceae #botanyisbitchin #rareplants #rarespecies #botany #pct2019 #pct #pacificcresttrail #nativeplants #californianativeplantsociety #cnps #californianativeplants #desertmountains #biology #nature #owenspeaklomatium #owenspeakdesertparsley

Are you a sunrise or a sunset type of person?

Reminiscing about our recent (last year) visit to the Richtersveldt National Park. One of the most incredible places I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. While driving through you’d be forgiven for thinking you are on another planet. It is desolate and dry but also has a remarkable amount of life if you look closely. Really need to get back there soon.

On the road in Namibia... towards the beautiful Naukluft Mountains. This is a shot from when our car broke down and we were stuck on this road for a while. Luckily, we had a lovely view, and a chance to take a few photos, while we waited for help.  #namibia #naukluft #desertmountains #namibia🇳🇦

Just in case you guys didn’t know that Texas is absurdly beautiful if you know where to look. Took these during a gnarly 15.2 mile hike out at Guadalupe Mountains National Park with the lovely @barefootbraylyn.
